A question about solving a linear program using the Tableau Method

  1. Apr 12, 2009 #1
    I am trying to solve the following linear program using the tableau method:

    Max Z = 25X1 + 100X2 subject to:
    0.10X1 – 0.90X2 + S1 = -10
    0.85X1 – 0.15X2 + S2 = -15
    0.60X1 + 0.60X2 + S3 = 40
    X1 , X2 , S1 , S2 , S3 ≥ 0

    The feasible region is just a triangle but the origin is not contained in it.

    I would like to set up the first tableau but I have to start from a feasible extreme point.

    I have picked Point (50,16.67) which corresponds to S3=S1=0, but I cannot complete the whole tableau:


    S2----0---0---0----?---1---?----- -25

    Does anybody have any clues? Thanks.
