Let x be the number short-answer questions and y be the number of essay quesitons.
Given : 9 points for short - answer
25 points for essay.
x <=10, obviously x >=9
y<=10, obviously y >=3
x + y <=19 ( constraints)
Maximum Z= 9x + 25 y
Subject to the constraints,
x>=9, y >= 3
Thanks for using Brainmass service :-)
How do you set it up from here using the numbers in the equation to solve? How do I use those equations to come up with the answer?
A linear programming problem is solved using graphical methods. The solution is detailed and well presented.
