Problem 9.3 -1.1x 1 +10x 2 =120 -2x 1 +17.4x 2 =174 (a) Solve it graphically. To solve graphically we express x2 in terms of x1 for both equations, plot the two lines and see where they intersect. [email protected](x1) (120+1.1*x1)/10 x2 = @(x1) (120+1.1*x1)/10 And for the second equation >> [email protected](x1) (174+2*x1)/17.4 x2a = @(x1) (174+2*x1)/17.4 In order to look for a graphical solution, we need to select a range to plot the functions. If we solved the problem only for x1 we would get values of the order of 100, and if we solved only for x2 we would get values of the order of 10. So we could try (0,200) for x1 >> fplot (x2,[0,200]); hold on >> fplot (x2a,[0,200])

Obviously the solution is further away, so we try again. >> fplot (x2,[200,500]); hold on >> fplot (x2a,[200,500]) 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 160 180 200 10 15 20 25 30 35

Now we are the right range but it is too broad to tell intersection. So we zoom >> fplot (x2,[350,450]); hold on >> fplot (x2a,[350,450]) 200 250 300 350 400 450 500 30 35 40 45 50 55 60 65 70
