    Hello,

    Below is a description written in Latex.

    I am not sure how to solve this problem. I am new to linear programming and, in fact, I do not know if it can be solved by linear constraints.

    Please guide. Thanks

    Since you call w "weights", do they sum to 1? Except for the division by w[d], this is a standard linear programming problem and the Simplex method should work. With that division, it is not immediately clear to me if it is a linear problem.
