# Simplex Method and Linear Programming : Optimal Basis

Not what you're looking for?

A) Consider the following linear program:
Min 5a + 4b - c + 2e
St a - 2c + d + 2e = 1
3b + 3c + 6d - 9e = 3
a, b, c, d, e > 0

Using the optimality criteria from the simplex method, argue whether or not {a, b} is an optimal basis.
