b. inconsistent
c. the same
d. unique
e. none of the above
2.Consider the following linear programming problem.
A coffee merchant sells two blends of coffee. Each pound of blend A contains 80% Mocha Java and 20% Jamaican and sells for $2 a pound. Each pound of blend B contains 35% Mocha Java and 65% Jamaican and sells for $2.25 a pound. The merchant has available 1000 pounds of Mocha Java and 600 pounds of Jamaican.
