In Excel, we first define some set of cells whose values will correspond to the decision va 2. In addition, we need to put in all of the parameters of the problem: Vector of objective function coefficients, c, constraint matrix coefficients, A, and right-hand s 3. Once we have defined where the objective coefficients and variable cells are, we create (The sumproduct function provides the sum of the component-wise multiplication of two vec 4. In addition to having the above, I prefer to define a column vector that contains each elem to multiply each row of the A matrix by the decision variable vector x. 5. Once it is setupt this way, it is easy to feed it into the solver, which you get to by going to (If it is not listed under tools, then it is an add-in that was not added with the installation, and 6. Once you open solver, make sure that the "Set Cell" box contains your objective function
