Describe in Detail

Solve the following problem Simplex method.

Maximize Z = 8x1+6x2

Subject to

x1+x2 ≤10



x1, x2≥0


The Simplex algorithm is an iterative procedure for solving LP problems in a finite number of steps. It consists of

  • Having a trial basic feasible solution to constraint-equations

  • Testing whether it is an optimal solution

  • Improving the first trial solution by a set of rules and repeating the process till an optimal

solution is obtained
