IEOR 162, Fall 2011 Homework 08 Note. If an LP has n variables and m constraints (excluding nonnegativity constraints), its dual LP MUST have n constraints (excluding nonnegativity constraints) and m variables. 1. (Modified from Problem 6.3.6; 20 points) Sugarco can manufacture three types of candy bar. Each candy bar consists totally of sugar and chocolate. Fifty oz of sugar and 100 oz of chocolate are available. The compositions of each type of candy bar and the profit earned from each candy bar are shown in the table below. Amount of Amount of Profit Bar Sugar (Ounces) Chocolate (Ounces) (Cents) 1 1 2 3 2 1 3 7 3 1 1 5 After defining x i to be the number of type- i candy bars manufactured, Sugarco should solve the following LP: max 3 x 1 + 7 x 2 + 5 x 3 s.t. x 1 + x 2 + x 3 50 (Sugar constraint) 2 x 1 + 3 x 2 + x 3 100 (Chocolate constraint) x i 0 i = 1 , ..., 3 . After adding two slack variables, the optimal simplex tableau is shown below.

### 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.

• 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.
