    Given the following linear programming model, identify the optimal solution.

    Maximize Z = $18x1 + $14x2

    Subject to:

    4x1 + 2x2 < or = 80

    2x1 + 6x2 < or = 60

    x1, x2 = 0

    a) No Solution

    b) x1 = 5, x2 = 6, Z = 174

    c) x1 = 30, x2 = 1, Z = 554

    d) x1 = 15, x2 = 5, Z = 340

    e) x1 = 18, x2 = 4, Z =380

    f) None of the above

    A) What is Optimal solution? Using Linear Programming or any other methods (Optional)

    B) Explain in Detail... What does it mean "Optimal Solution"?
