y = 4 + (1/3) x
y=6
y = -1/3 + 4 x
y=x+6
y = 4 - (1/3) x
y = (3/2)x + 2
Line A is equivalent to #6 (y = (3/2) x + 2)
Line B is equivalent to #2 (y = 6)
Line C is equivalent to #5 (y = 4 - (1/3) x)

y=4-2x
y = (2/3)x + 14
y = 1/2 x + 4
y=4+2x
y = 14 - (3/2) x
y = 14 - (2/3) x
Line A is equivalent to #4 (y = 4 + 2 x)
Line B is equivalent to #6 (y = 14 – (2/3) x)
Answer: It is a bounded feasible region. There are four corner points indicated
by the letters ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, and ‘D’. The coordinates (X1, X2) for these points were
given in the problem above.
x1&gt;=4
4x1+2x2&lt;=8
x2 &gt;=6
All variables are non-negative
Blue line = x1=4
Red line = 4x1+2x2=8
Green line = x2=6
Answer: This graph shows an infeasible region. There are no feasible points
satisfying all the constraints. Therefore, there are no corner points
Answer: It is an unbounded feasible region. The feasible region is above the line
X2 = 2 and to the right side of X1 = 4. This region extends “forever”. It has one
vertex at point A with coordinates (X1= 4, X2 = 2).

X1 + 2X2
Subject to: 2X1 + X2 ≤10
X1 + X ≤ 6
-X1 + X2 ≤ 2
-2X1 + X2 ≤ 1
X1 ≥ 0, X2 ≥ 0
By trying all feasible vertices we will find that, the optimal solution occurs at
vertex X1 = 2, X2 = 4, with optima value of X1 + 2X2 = 10,
Answer: Since the feasible region is bounded, you can find all of the corner
points. By finding all 6 feasible vertices, you can evaluate the objective function
at each point by substituting its coordinate X1 and X2 into the objective function
(X1 + 2X2). By doing so, you will find that, the optimal solution occurs at vertex
X1 = 2, X2 = 4, with optima value of X1 + 2X2 = 10.
