ORIE 3300/5300 ASSIGNMENT 5 Fall 2010 Individual work. Due: 3 pm, Friday October 15. 1. Read Chapter 3 in the AMPL book, on transportation and assignment problems, in preparation for next week’s recitations. 2. (a) Introduce slack variables in the linear program below. Then solve it using the simplex method. Use the slacks as the initial basic variables. At each iteration, use the “smallest subscript rule”: whenever the simplex method allows you a choice between sev- eral possible entering variables, choose the one with the smallest subscript, and use the same rule when the method allows you a

(b) At which iterations was the basic feasible solution degenerate? (c) Which of the pivots you performed were degenerate? (d) Sketch a three-dimensional picture of the feasible region. (e) Which, if any, of the four ﬁrst constraints is “redundant”? In other words, which, if any, of these constraints could you delete without changing the feasible region? 1...

### 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.
