1. The extreme points are those on the edges of the feasible region.
Ie. (0, -0.5) (1, 1) (4, 0)
Solving for the LPP, we substitute this points into the objective function.
Value of Z=-2x1+x2

Some Sample Probability Questions
1) A box of screws contains 5% defective screws. How many
screws have to be chosen at random before there's a greater than
50% chance that at least one is defective? (Assume that after
pulling several screws that the prob
Q1. A sphere was measured and its radius was found to be 45 inches with a possible error of no
more than 0.01 inches. What is the maximum possible error in the volume if we use this value of
the equation for the volume of a sphere.
Q1. What is an Asymptote?
A straight line is an ASYMPTOTE to a curve if and only if the perpendicular distance from a
variable point on the curve to the line approaches to zero as a limit when the point tends to
infinity along the curve on both sides or o
Let f (x, y) = 5x3y2. Determine the two partial derivatives.
f ( x, y )
, we keep the y variable constant. In other words, 5y2 is a constant.
