Linear Programming

An iso-profit line represents all combinations of the products which would yield the same value of profits.
The feasible solution space (or area) only contains points that satisfy all constraints.
A simplex method is possible to solve L.P. problems with more than three (n>3) decision variables.
Changing one or more of the objective coefficients will change the feasible solution area(or space) in the L.P.
Iso-profit line represents all possible combinations of:
a. the decision variables which will produce a given profit. c. the constraints which will produce a given profit.
b. the objective function which will produce a given profit. d. the solution points in the feasible solution area.
Some assumptions of the general L.P. model are:
a. linearity, divisibility, certainty, nonnegativity. b. linearity, stockasticity, additivity, divisibility.
c. certainty, linearity, feasibility, nonnegativity. d. constraints, objective function, decision variable.
A feasible solution area (or space) in a L.P. problem represents:
