Example __and__

Assignment #4

20 points

__Due__: September 14

X_{1} = bags of Super-gro

X_{2} = bags of Crop-quick

Z_{min} = $6X_{1} + $3X_{2}

subject to:

2X_{1 }+ 4 X_{2} >= 16 lbs of nitrogen

4X_{1} + 3X_{2} >= 24 lbs of phosphate

X_{1}, X_{2} >= 0

__Recall__ that we did this problem earlier in the
semester. We solved it with the graphical method. We will now solve it
with the Simplex method.

Here are the first two iterations of the problem. Draw the remaining
tableaus and circle the optimal solution when you reach the final
tableau. Then, enter the problem into STORM. Print the __detailed__
report (2 screens) and circle the optimal solution on your
printout. Attach a typed report to management that explains the values of
__all__ the variables.
