    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
