Unformatted text preview: be allotted to the mathematical formulation of the problem. Also, in many real life problems, not all parameters are equally important, so keep that in mind when tackling this question. 2. (45 points ) Exercise 5 in Chapter 4. Hint: Think of a greedy way to place the cell towers. It might help to forget about the schedul-ing algorithms we have seen in class and just think of a greedy algorithm from “scratch.” Then try to analyze the algorithm using similar arguments to one we have seen in class. 3. (15 points ) Exercise 9 in Chapter 3. ( Hint: It might be helpful to start thinking about an algorithm to solve the problem in the ﬁrst place.) 1...
