CO 350 Assignment 4.5 – Winter 2010 Not to be handed in 1. Consider the LP problem maximize c T x subject to Ax = b, x 0, where c = - 1 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 1 , A = 1 0 0 1 0 6 3 1 - 4 0 0 2 1 0 2 0 1 2 , and b = 9 2 6 . (a) Find the tableau corresponding to the basis { 1 , 2 , 3 } and to the basis { 1 , 4 , 5 } . Which of them is feasible? (b) Beginning with a feasible tableau from part (a), solve the problem with the simplex method. 2. Consider the linear programming problem ( P ) max { c T x : Ax b, x 0 } , where A = 2 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 1 0 3 1 - 1 1 - 1 , b = 3 1 1 , c = 1 0 1 - 1 . (a) Put the problem into standard equality form, and, beginning with all slack variables basic, solve with the simplex method, using the smallest subscript rule for choosing the entering variable. (b) Is the optimal solution you found in part (a) the only optimal solution? Explain. 3. The following is a tableau of a maximization problem, where the entries

Unformatted text preview: α , β , γ , δ and ε in the tableau are unknown parameters. z + δx 4 + γx 5 = x 2 + αx 4 = 3 x 3-2 x 4 + εx 5 = 2 x 1 + 2 x 5 = β For each of the following statements, ±nd conditions on the values of α , β , γ , δ and ε such that the statement is true. (a) The basic solution is not feasible. (b) The basic solution is feasible, but the tableau is not optimal. (c) The basic solution is feasible, x 5 is a candidate for entering the basis, and when x 5 enters the basis, then x 3 must leave the basis. (d) The basic solution is feasible and the next iteration, under the smallest subscript rule (see Section 6.6), indicates that the problem is unbounded. 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.
