 University University of London (UOL) Subject Linear Equation

1. Identify the decision variables for this problem, using clear notation.
2. Use these decision variables to formulate the firm’s objective function, clearly stating what the objective is.
3. Use the information in Tables 1 and 2 above to identify the constraints for this problem.
4. Use what you have identified in 1-3 above to formulate and present the complete linear programming model for this problem.

1. Enter the linear programming model you have derived in 4 above into Solver and obtain the optimal solution to the problem.
2. Extract the solution from Solver and state the value of the objective function and the values of the decision variables and summarise the results.

1. Using Solver extract a Sensitivity Report for the problem.
2. Extract the slack and surplus variables from the Sensitivity Report and interpret their meaning.
3. Using the results of the sensitivity report indicates whether the optimal solution of the problem is unique or if there are alternative optimal solutions? Give reasons for your answer.
4. Present a brief interpretation of the ranging information on the objective function coefficients presented in the Sensitivity Report for this problem.
