2 Today’s Learning Goals Graphical Solution to an LP Problem Isoprofit Line Solution Method Corner Point Solution Method Slack and Surplus
3 Flair Furniture Company Maximize profit = \$70 T + \$50 C subject to 4 T + 3 C ≤ 240 (carpentry constraint) 2 T + 1 C ≤ 100 (painting and varnishing con T ≥ 0 (nonnegativity constraint) C ≥ 0 (nonnegativity constraint) T = number of tables to be produced per week. C = number of chairs to be produced per week.

4 Graphical Representation of a Constraint The first step in solving the problem is to identify a set or region of feasible solutions. To do this we plot each constraint equation on a graph. We start by graphing the equality portion of the constraint equations: 4 T + 3 C = 240 We solve for the axis intercepts and draw the line.

6 Graphical Representation of a Constraint When Flair produces no tables, the carpentry constraint is: 4(0) + 3 C = 240 3 C = 240 C = 80 Similarly for no chairs: 4 T + 3(0) = 240 4 T = 240 T = 60 This line is shown on the following graph:

Any point above the plot will violate the restriction. (30, 40) (30, 20) (70, 40) Region that Satisfies the Carpentry Constraint
9 Graphical Representation of a Constraint The point (30, 40) lies on the plot and exactly satisfies the constraint 4(30) + 3(40) = 240. The point (30, 20) lies below the plot and satisfies the constraint 4(30) + 3(20) = 180.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
