3. Homework for IEOR162 Linear Programming Semester: Fall 2010 Instructor: Dr. Sarah Drewes Due to: Thu, October 7, 2010 (at the beginning of class) P1 Consider the problem (compare Homework 1, P2, problem b)) max z = 4 x 1 + x 2 s.t. 8 x 1 + 2 x 2 16 5 x 1 + 2 x 2 12 x 1 , x 2 0 a) Write down the extreme points of the feasible region in two di- mensions. (You can use the graph of the feasible region from Homework 1.) b) Reformulate the problem in standard form. c) Write down all basic solutions to this problem and determine if they are basic feasible solutions (bfs) to the LP. d) Identify for each basic feasible solution of the LP in standard form to which extreme point it corresponds. e) Is the LP degenerate? P2 Consider an LP in standard form, hence with feasible region Ax = b , x 0. Show that d is a direction of unboundedness if and only if
