IEOR E4007 G. Iyengar Sept. 10th 2008 Homework #1 Due : Wednesday, September 24th, 2008. 1. Simple linear program Consider the following linear program (please solve this question by hand and not use any computer solver, you may use solver for all the other questions): max 2 x 1 + x 2 , subject to 12 x 1 + 3 x 2 6 , - 3 x 1 + x 2 7 , x 2 10 , x 1 ,x 2 0 . (a) Draw a graph of the constraints and shade in the feasible region. Label the vertices of this region with their coordinates. (b) Using the graph obtained in (a), find the optimal solution and the maximum value of the objective function. (c) What is the slack in each of the constraints? (d) Find the shadow prices on each of the constraints. (e) Find the ranges associated with the two coefficients of the objective function. (f) Find the righthand-side ranges for the three constraints. 2. Portfolio selection problem A portfolio manager in charge of a bank portfolio has \$10 million to invest.

### 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.

• 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.
