 Answer by edgie Submitted on 2/25/2005 Rating: Not yet rated Rate this answer: N/A Worst Weak OK Good Great Classic LP model:   Maximize Z=6x+11y   subject to x+y <=300              x+y >=180                x >=60                y >=60 Change these four inequalities to equalites and graph them on the same graph.  The feasible region for this problem looks kind of like a sideways trapazoid.  The four corners of the trapazoid are your CPF solutions.  Evaluate Z at all four, optimal solution is the one that yields the largest Z value.  Ans: (x,y)=(60,240), Z=3000 Tony Little has the coolest mullet.
