Not what you're looking for?

The optimal solution of the linear programming problem is at the intersection of constraints 1 and 2.
Max 2x1 + x2
s.t. 4x1 + 1x2 < 400
4x1 + 3x2 < 600
1x1 + 2x2 £ 300
x1 , x2 > 0

Since constraint 3 is not a binding constraint the dual price for third constraint is zero. Thus, possible answers are .45, .25, 0 or .25, .25, 0.
The solution lies at the intersection of constraints 1 and 2. Thus, ...
