Problem 1:   Just say there are five computer science graduates A, B, C, D and E, and six advertised  positions  a b c d e  and  f . Assume that:  A is qualified for jobs  a  and  d B is qualified for jobs  a  and  c C is qualified for jobs  b  and  f D is qualified for jobs  b d  and  e E is qualified for jobs  c  and  f . Is it possible that everyone will get a job for which they are qualified?  To study such a  matching problem , begin by constructing a bipartite graph, as follows. Definition of Matching Let  G  be a bipartite graph, a  matching  of  G  is a set of edges no two of which share an end. 1 | P a g e
