Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to maximize a linear equation: 4*a + 8*b + 7*c + 5*d + 9*e with the following constraints:

0<=(4*a + 8*b + 7*c + 5*d + 9*e)<=1

0<=a<=100; 0<=b<=100; 0<=c<=100; 0<=d<=100; 0<=e<=100

Can I solve this problem using linear programming?

Is there are any other method to do it?

Thanks!
