 Question 304905: In solving a linear programming problem, you are given the following initial tableau. 7 3 2 1 0 0 5 4 1 1 0 1 0 20 -5 -10 -1 0 0 1 0 What is the problem being solved? Answer by Edwin McCravy(8883)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! 7 3 2 1 0 0 5 4 1 1 0 1 0 20 -5 -10 -1 0 0 1 0 Put in ordinary variables x, y, z, P, slack variables s1, s2, and + signs between terms where necessary to show addition: 7x + 3y + 2z + 1s1 + 0s2 + 0P = 5 4x + 1y + 1z + 0s1 + 1s2 + 0P = 20 -5x - 10y - 1z + 0s1 + 0s2 + 1P = 0 Erase the terms with 0 coefficients, and the 1 coefficients: Erase the slack variables in the first two equations and change the signs to 's. Also, solve the bottom equation for P The problem is: Maximize subject to the constraints: Edwin
