A baby products firm produces a strained baby food containing liver and milk, each of which contribute protein and iron to the baby food. Each jar of baby food must have 36 milligrams of protein and 50 milligrams of iron. The company has developed the following linearprogramming model to determine the number of ounces of live

Consider the following linear programming problem.
MIN Z = 10x1 + 20x2
Subject to: x1 + x2 >= 12
2x1 + 5x2 >= 40
x1, x2 >= 0

Put your answer in the xxx.x (to one decimal place)

Provide an appropriate response.
1) Explain the result if the simplex tableau is solved using a quotient other than the smallest non-nega five quotient.
2) Explain why a different slack variable must be used for each constraint when converting
constraints to linear equations.
3) When would the simplex method be used instead

State all the assumptions and show all the work. Define your decision variables clearly. Briefly explain the constraints and objectives functions and define all unit of measure.
Consider the following linearprogramming problem:
Max x + 3y
s.t. -x +

Exercise 4.25 This exercise shows that if we bring the dual problem into standard form and then apply the primal simplexmethod, the resulting algorithm is not identical to the dual simplex method.
Consider the following standard form problem and its dual.
minimize x1 + x2 maximize p

The following problem is something that needs to be put into tableau iterations, but I'm not sure of my answers on it... I'm catching on slowly, but would like to have something to use to check my work... This is a homework problem, but the homework is graded on participation, not correctness in this distance learning class.
