Could someone explain the solutions of this problem?

    3. The questions

    1) Why did they add the contraints to eliminate the nonbasic variables/parameters (I don't know why they switch the terms because in Linear Algebra we refer parameters as "basic variables")

    2) How did they choose [tex]\epsilon = \frac{1}{2}[/tex]

    Thank you very much
