Method of Corners: 1. Graph the corresponding equations by hand or on your calculator (i.e. solve each inequality for y and replace the inequality sign with an equal sign). Be careful in choosing your window. If there are non-negativity constraints on x and y , account for these by choosing x -min and y -min to be 0. 2. Determine the feasible region. 3. Find the coordinates of the corner points. You can either do this algebraically or on the calculator. There are four possible corner points: The origin (i.e the point ( 0 , 0 ) ) The intersection of two lines (use 2nd TRACE 5:intersect) The intersection of a line and the y -axis (recognize that this is the y -intercept of the line or use 2nd TRACE 1:value and enter in 0 for x ) The intersection of a line and the x -axis (plug in 0 for y and solve for x or use 2nd TRACE 2:zero and specify a left and right bound that includes the point where the line actually crosses the x -axis) 4. Make a table and evaluate the objective function at each corner point. Example 2:

Each quart of Vanilla requires 2 eggs and 3 cups of cream. Each quart of Mocha requires 1 egg and 3 cups of cream. You have in stock 500 eggs and 900 cups of cream. You make a profit of $3 on each quart of Vanilla and $4 on each quart of Mocha. a) How many quarts of each flavor should you make in order to earn the largest profit? b) Are there any leftover resources?

    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.
