30S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 1 Unit: Linear Programming Lesson 5: Problem Solving Problem Solving with Linear Programming Learning Outcome B-1 LP-L5 Objectives: To solve complex problems using Linear Programming techniques.

30S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 2 Unit: Linear Programming Lesson 5: Problem Solving The process of finding a feasible region and locating the points that give the minimum or maximum value to a specific expression is called linear programming. It is frequently used to determine maximum profits, minimum costs, minimum distances, and so on. Theory – Intro

30S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 3 Unit: Linear Programming Lesson 5: Problem Solving Graph the following system of inequalities and identify the corner points of the feasible region. Then find the values of x and y that maximize the expression M = x + 3y. Example - Maximize the Value of a Specific Expression x + y  6 x + 2y  8 x  2 y  1

30S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 4 Unit: Linear Programming Lesson 5: Problem Solving Graph the following system of inequalities and identify the corner points of the feasible region. Then find the values of x and y that maximize the expression M = x + 3y. Example - Maximize the Value of a Specific Expression x + y  6 x + 2y  8 x  2 y  1 Solution 1. Graph the system: The feasible region is the green shaded area shown 2. Find the vertices of the feasible region: The coordinates of the corner points are (2, 3), (2, 1), (5, 1), and (4, 2). 3. Substitute each vertice into the equation to find maximum: The value of M for each point is Point (2, 3): M = 2 + 3(3) = 11 Point (2, 1): M = 2 + 3(1) = 5 Point (5, 1): M = 5 + 3(1) = 8 Point (4, 2): M = 4 + 3(2) = 10 Therefore, the value of M is maximized at (2, 3).

Then find the values of x and y that maximize the expression M = 4x + y. Test Yourself - Maximize the Value of a Specific Expression x  0 y  0 3x + 2y  6 2x + 3y  6

30S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 6 Unit: Linear Programming Lesson 5: Problem Solving Graph the following system of inequalities and identify the corner points of the feasible region. Then find the values of x and y that maximize the expression M = 4x + y. Test Yourself - Maximize the Value of a Specific Expression x  0 y  0 3x + 2y  6 2x + 3y  6 Solution 1.

Then find the values of x and y that minimize the expression M = 3x + 2y. Test Yourself – Minimize the Value of a Specific Expression x + y  4 x + 5y  8 -x + 2y  6

30S Applied Math Mr. Knight – Killarney School Slide 8 Unit: Linear Programming Lesson 5: Problem Solving Graph the following system of inequalities and identify the corner points of the feasible region. Then find the values of x and y that minimize the expression M = 3x + 2y. Test Yourself – Minimize the Value of a Specific Expression x + y  4 x + 5y  8 -x + 2y  6 Solution 1.
