Consider the following linear program: maximize cT x 2 −1 −3 0 subject to −2 3 ≥ 0 5 x2 3 x1 −3 2 −8 a) Provide a vector c such that this linear program is feasible but has no optimal solution. b) Provide three diﬀerent values of c so that each will lead to a distinct optimal solution. c) Which among the following additional constraints would guarantee that the linear program is feasible and has an optimal solution for all vectors c? (1) x1 ≤ 6 (2) x2 ≥ 7 (3) 3x1 + 2x2 ≤ 20 (4) 3x1 + 2x2 ≥ 20 (5) x1 + 4x2 ≥ 0 d) Which among the following additional constraints would make that the linear program is infeasible? (1) x1 + 3x2 ≤ 2 (2) 2x1 + 3x2 ≤ 17 (3) 2x1 + 3x2 ≥ 17 (4) x1 − 2x2 ≥ 2 (5) x2 ≤ 0 Part B
