# Linear Programming and Simplex Methods : Minimization based on Tableau

Not what you're looking for? Search our solutions OR ask your own Custom question.

Consider the simplex tableau

x y u v w M

1 0 3 0 0 0 10

0 0 1 0 1 0 0

0 1 -6 0 0 0 3

0 0 8 1 0 0 7

0 0 5 0 0 1 4

The tableau above is the final one in a problem to minimize -x + 2y. The minimum value of -x + 2y occurs when:

a. x = 10, y =3

b. x = -10, y= -3

c. x = 10, y =0

d. x = -20, y= 6.

e. None of the above
