(20 points) Valdosta Tile Co. has two clay mining pits, P1 and P2, each of which supplies 15 tons of clay per month to three tile making kilns, K1, K2 and K3, each of which require 10 tons of clay per month. The shipping costs (\$ per ton) are given in the table below: a) Formulate a transportation linear program to minimize shipping costs b) Determine a “Northwest Corner Rule” basic feasible solution for this problem. Calculate the total transportation cost associated with this solution. c) Perform one iteration of the transportation simplex method.
