    For the linear program
    Max 4A + 1B
    10A + 2B <= 30
    3A + 2B <= 12
    2A + 2B <= 10
    A, B >= 0
    a. Write this problem in standard form.
    b. Solve the problem using the graphical solution procedure.
    c. What are the values of the three slack variables at optimal solution?

    Please provide detailed instructions of how to complete problem, so that I can do the other problems for my assignment.

    (a) Standard form:
    Maximize z = 4x1 + x2
    Subject to:
    10x + 2y  30
    3x + 2y  12
    2x + 2y  10
    x,y ≥ 0

    (b) Graphical solution:
    We consider each constraint as equality and graph the ...
