Unformatted text preview: An algebraic method for finding a maximum in a linear program with two or more variables Now we will learn a scaled down version. The full version is in Chapter 4 Sec 2.6 Friday, February 05, 2010 5:17 PM Section2dot6 Page 1 An algebraic method for finding a maximum in a linear program with two or more variables Now we will learn a scaled down version. The full version is in Chapter 4 The linear program must be a maximization The constraint inequalities must have the form: linear expression ≤ a positive # All variables must be non-negative 2.6.1 Friday, February 05, 2010 5:17 PM Section2dot6 Page 2 An algebraic method for finding a maximum in a linear program with two or more variables Now we will learn a scaled down version. The full version is in Chapter 4 The linear program must be a maximization The constraint inequalities must have the form: linear expression ≤ a positive # All variables must be non-negative A slack variable is an extra variable, which is added to an inequality to make the constraint an equality EX: 5 x 1 + x 2 ≤ 9 5 x 1 + x 2 + x 3 = 9 x 3 "picks up the slack" in the inequality 2.6.2 Friday, February 05, 2010 5:17 PM Section2dot6 Page 3 An algebraic method for finding a maximum in a linear program with two or more variables Now we will learn a scaled down version.
