8th Homework for IEOR162 Linear Programming Semester: Fall 2010 Instructor: Dr. Sarah Drewes Due to: Tuesday, November 23, 2010, (at the beginning of class) P1 Consider the following simplex tableau for a maximization problem: z x 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 rhs 1 δ 2 0 0 0 10 0 -1 1 1 0 0 4 0 α -4 0 1 0 1 0 γ 3 0 0 1 β The parameters α, β, δ, γ are unknown parameters. For each of the following statements (a)-(c) find conditions on the parameters that will make the statement true. (a) The current solution is optimal and there are multiple optimal solutions. (b) The problem is unbounded. (c) The current solution is feasible, but not optimal. P2 Given the primal problem max z = x 1 + 2 x 2 s.t. 3 x 1 + x 2 6 2 x 1 + x 2 = 5 x 1 , x 2 0 (1) (a) Use the rules presented in the lecture to directly find the dual of this problem (without transformation into normal form). (b) Now transform the LP (1) into normal max form. Take the dual of the transposed LP. Let y 0 2 and y 00 2 denote the variables for the two inequality constraints introduced for

Unformatted text preview: 2 x 1 + x 2 = 5. (c) Show that the duals obtained in part (a) and (b) are equivalent by substituting y 2 = y 2-y 00 2 in the dual derived in part (b). 1 P3 Consider the following auto production model that determines the number of trucks ( x 1 ) and the number of cars ( x 2 ) produced daily. The proﬁt of each truck is 3, the proﬁt of each car is 2 (in hundreds of dollars). The paint shop can produce 60 cars per day (if only cars) or 40 trucks per day(if only trucks), the body shop can produce 50 cars per day (if only cars) or 50 trucks per day(if only trucks). Thus, the LP maximizing the daily proﬁt is given by: max z = 3 x 1 + 2 x 2 s.t. 1 40 x 1 + 1 60 x 2 ≤ 1 1 50 x 1 + 1 50 x 2 ≤ 1 x 1 , x 2 ≥ (2) Formulate the dual problem of (2) and give an economic interpretation. 2...

### 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.
