Dual Problem of an LPP Given a LPP (called the primal problem), we shall associate another LPP called the dual problem of the original (primal) problem. We shall see that the Optimal values of the primal and dual are the same provided both have finite feasible solutions. This topic is further used to develop another method of solving LPPs and is also used in the sensitivity (or post-optimal) analysis.
