The values a , b , c , d , and e in the tableau are parameters that I have not specified. Warning: for this question, you must show me the work or rationale you used to arrive to your answer. No credit is given for simply writing the answer. Hint: Be careful when you say something like " a is positive" or " a > 0." If you mean strictly positive, then that's fine. But there’s a difference between " a ≥ 0" and " a > 0." For instance, if I asked, "When is this a feasible solution?" the answer would be " d ≥ 0" not " d > 0." x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 Pivot Row x 1 x 2 x 3

To assure this tableau remains optimal, these variables must remain nonnegative. a 0 b 0 Part A (4 points): For what values of a and b is this an optimal tableau? (Assume d 0.) x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 x 6 Pivot Row x 1 x 2 x 3 By the rules of optimization, the marginal net gain must remain either zero or negative in that row of the tableau.

(You again need to have d ≥ 0.) If a parameter can take any value, please say so.

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
