    The Bunker Manufacturing Firm has five employees and six machines and wants to assign the employees to the machines to minimize cost. A cost table showing the cost incurred by each employee on each machine follows:

    Machine
    _______________________________________________
    Emp A B C D E F

    1 $10 $12 $ 7 $20 $14 $ 8
    2 11 10 14 13 20 9
    3 10 5 3 6 9 7
    4 10 9 11 7 16 9
    5 12 10 6 14 8 10

    Because of union rules regarding departmental transfers, employee 3 cannot be assigned to machine E, and employee 4 cannot be assigned to machine B. Solve this problem, indicate the optimal assignment, and compute total minimum cost.
