Suppose you guess ( a, b, c, d ) = (0 , 42 / 5 , , 2 / 5) is optimal. Use complementary slackness to prove your guess and the solution to the dual problem is correct. Brief solution: This is similar to the in class exercise of Lecture 9. s 6 Q5. Prove Farkas’ Lemma from class. Brief solution: See Lecture 11. 7 (This page is intentionally left blank.)...
