Simplex Method
Page 213 Problem 7 (Also use the graphical method to verify
One optimal solution is z = 2, x1 = 1/2, x2 = 0.
An alternative optimal solution z = 2, x1 = 1/3, x2 = 2/3.
This LP has an infinite number of optimal solutions (see your
graph!)
The Big-M and the 2-Phase Simplex Methods
Page 213 Problem 3
The optimal solution is z = 15, x1 = 3, x2 = 0.

a. The optimal dual solution is w = 16, y1 = 0, y2 = 2.
b. The current basis remains optimal for c3 ≥ 1.
c. c1 ≤ 12.
Complementary Slackness
Page 328 Problem 3
The optimal primal solution z = 49/3, x1 = 5/3, x2 = 8/3, x3 =0.

Transportation Problem
Page 408 problem 5:
In part (b) use the Northwest corner method.
Let xij = number of type j files stored on medium i. The cost of
40, for example, is derived from the fact that if one word
processing file is stored on a hard disk it will be accessed eight
times per month and require five minutes per access. Thus 8(5) =
40 minutes per month will be spent accessing a word processing
The optimal tableau is as follows:

Six lines are now needed to cover the zeroes. The optimal solution
x66 = 1, x15 = 1, x21 = 1, x32 = 1, x44 = 1, x53 = 1 is now available.
Thus Professor 1 teaches 9 AM and 2 PM class, Professor 2 teaches
10 AM and 1 PM class, and Professor 3 teaches 11 AM and 3 PM
class.

Shortest Path Problem
Page 418 Problem 1:
1-3-6 is the shortest path (of length 31) from node 1 to node
6.
Maximum Flow Problems
Page 430 Problem 4:
Maximum flow is 45. Min Cut Set = {1, 3, and si}. Capacity
of Cut Set = 20 + 15 + 10 = 45.

Page 430 Problem 5:
Maximum flow = 9. Min Cut Set = {2, 4, si}. Capacity of Cut
= 3 + 1 + 3 + 2 = 9.
Minimum Spanning Tree
Page 473 Problem 5:
Begin at NY and include NY-Cleveland arc (length 400). Next
include NY-Nashville arc (length 800). Next include
Nashville-Dallas(length 600). Next include Dallas-St.
Louis(length 600). Next include Dallas-Phoenix(length 900).
Next include Phoenix-LA (length 400. Finally include Salt
Lake City-Los Angeles (length 600). Total length of minimum
spanning tree is 4300 miles.
