(h) What is the shadow price for raw material? (i) Perform sensitivity analysis on the raw material constraint. What is the range over which the shadow price for raw material is valid? (j) Perform sensitivity analysis on the coefficients in the objective function. Suppose that the com- pany is considering raising prices on the deluxe version of the product in order to increase profit. The profit for one unit of the deluxe product is currently 15. What is the upper limit on this coefficient for which the current optimal solution will remain unchanged?

5. (20 pts) Consider the following linear programming problem. max Z = 4 x 1 + 2 x 2 subject to 2 x 1 16 (resource 1) x 1 + 3 x 2 12 (resource 2) x i 0 , i = 1 , 2 (a) Solve this problem graphically 5 10 5 10 x 2 x 1 (b) There is a shadow price associated with each resource. Which (if any) of the resources have a strictly positive shadow price? (c) The coefficient of x 1 in the objective function is currently equal to 4. Determine the allowable range for this coefficient, call it c 1 , over which the current solution remains optimal. Your answer will have the form l c 1 u , where l and u define the range.

    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.
