The Railroad is in the process of planning relocations of

freight cars among the 5 regions of the country to get ready for the fall harvest. Table 1

shows the cost of moving a car between each pair of regions. And Table 2 shows the current

number of cars in each region and the number needed for harvest shipping.

Write down a linear optimization to compute the least costly way to move the cars such
us the need is met. Solve the problem using MATLAB.
