Essay 3 Linear Programming
Linear Programming is used to optimize processes like production, profit or cost. The process involves
Step1: Taking linear constraints and graphing them.
Step 2: Finding the feasable region - the region that complies with all the constraints in 1).
Step 3: Plotting the objective function on the sketch.
Step 4: Moving the objective function across the feasable region to intersect the feasable region at the optimum location in order to optimize the process.
Here is a complete example of how a linear programming problem can be solved with the help of some software.
