Simplex Minimization Problem
Due: September 14
X1 = bags of Super-gro
X2 = bags of Crop-quick
Zmin = $6X1 + $3X2
2X1 + 4 X2 >= 16 lbs of nitrogen
4X1 + 3X2 >= 24 lbs of phosphate
X1, X2 >= 0
Recallthat 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.
