Blending problem:
Decision variables
x1: tons of ore from mine 1 in each ton of the blend
x2: tons of ore from mine 2 in each ton of the blend
x3: tons of ore from mine 3 in each ton of the blend
x4: tons of ore from mine 4 in each ton of the blend
Objective function
Min cost
Min 800x1+400x2+600x3+500x4
Element A: 10x1+3x2+8x3+2x4>=5
Element B: 90x1+250x2+75x3+175x4>=100
Element C: 45x1+25x2+20x3+37x4>=30
Weight: x1+x2+x3+x4=1

If you know that Element B has slack of 31.666
