Carlos Iván Chávez López A01273482 Chapter 3 Review Questions 1. Identify the general mathematical form of the basic LP model. Max Z = c1x1 + c2x2 + … + cnxn subject to a11 x1 + a12 x2 + … + a1n xn <>= b1 a21 x1 + a22 x2 + … + a2n xn <>= b2 a31 x1 + a32 x2 + … + a3n xn <>= b3 am1 x1 + am2 x2 +…+ amn xn <>= bm x1 ,x2 , … xn >= 0 - Where x1, x2,…xn are the decision variables. - a11, a12,…, a1n, a21, a22,…, a2n, etc. represent coefficients of the physical substitution rate (usage); for instance, to describe the rate of usage of raw material i, in the production of the item j. - c1, c2, …, cn are the coefficients of contribution to the objective function. - b1, b2, …, bn are the available resources of raw material. 2. Briefly describe the procedures/steps that should be employed in formulating a problem as an LP model. 1. To identify and to define the decision variables (xj) associated with the problem, including their units of measure. 2. To identify the coefficients of contribution (cj) associated to each variable, including their units of measure. 3. To formulate the objective function and to verify consistency in units of measure. 4. To identify the physical substitution rate coefficients (aij), including the corresponding units of measure. 5. To identify the available resources or requirements to fulfill, that is, the coefficients of the right hand side (bi). They are values appearing to the right

    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.
