represent the number of homeowners interviewed during the
day.
The objective function minimizes the cost of
interviewing this and other categories and there is a
constraint that HD >
100.
The solution indicates that
interviewing another homeowner during the day will increase
costs by 10.00.
What do you know?
a.
the objective function coefficient of HD is 10.
b.
the dual price for the HD constraint is 10.
c.
the objective function coefficient of HD is 10.
d.
the dual price for the HD constraint is 10.

Let M be the number of units to make and B be the number of
units to buy. If it costs $3 to make a unit and $2 to buy a
unit and 4000 units are needed, the objective function is
a.
Max 2M + 3B
b.
Min 3M + 2B
c.
Min 4000 (M + B)
d.
Max 8000M + 12000B
