Unformatted text preview: objective function, and is within the graph’s scale 5. Shift the objective function-When looking for a maximum, shift the objective function parallel in the increasing direction until it hits the last point in the feasible region.-When looking for a minimum, shift the objective function parallel in the decreasing direction until it hits the last point in the feasible region. 6. Calculate the intersection-Use algebra (substitution) to calculate the last point in the feasible region, which is also the intersection of two constraint lines (2 equations 2 unknowns). Calculate the Z value at that point as well....
