Tutorial 7: Outline of Solutions Q1. Consider the following linear programming problem: ( P ) min 3 x 1 + 4 x 3 s.t. 2 x 1 + x 2 - x 3 - 2 x 1 + 3 x 2 - 5 x 3 7 x 1 0 , x 2 0 (a) Write the standard form of the above LP problem. (b) Verify that the dual of the above LP problem obtained directly from the table of primal- dual relation given in the lecture and the dual of the standard form LP problem in part (a) are equivalent. Solution : (a) The standard form LP: ( P 1) min - x 1 + 4 x + 3 - 4 x - 3 s.t. - x 1 + x 2 - x + 3 + x - 3 + s 1 = - 2 - ¯ x 1 + 3 x 2 - 5 x + 3 + 5 x - 3 - s 2 = 7 ¯ x 1 , x 2 , x + 3 , x - 3 , s 1 , s 2 0 (b) Dual (D) of given LP: ( D ) max - 2 p 1 + 7 p 2 s.t. 2 p 1 + p 2 3 p 1 + 3 p 2 0 - p 1 - 5 p 2 = 4 p 1 0 , p 2 0 Dual of standard form LP: ( D 1) max - 2 q 1 + 7 q 2 s.t. - 2 q 1 - q 2 - 3 q 1 + 3 q 2 0 - q 1 - 5 q 2 4 q 1 + 5 q 2 - 4 q 1 0 - q 2 0 q 1 free , q 2 free This is equivalent to ( D 1) max - 2 q 1 + 7 q 2 s.t. - 2 q 1 - q 2 - 3 q 1 + 3 q 2 0 - q 1 - 5 q 2 = 4 q 1 0 q 2 0 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.
