Homework Help: How to get solution from the final simplex iteration

  1. Jan 1, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have a programing problem and have to solve it using the simplex method. after i do all iterations such that the objective function row is all positive, how do i get the final answer.
    For an example, if i have the final table as:
    1, 2, 3, 4,
    5, 8, 1, 7,
    6, 11, 12, 9,

    where the last row is the objective function row,
    the first column is the right hand side of each equation, second column x1, third column x2 , fourth column x3,
    first row x4 and second row x5

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    do i have to say that: x1=11; x2=12; x3=9

    I think thats wrong.
    Any ideas or help would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you
