Solve this LP model using the Simplex method Maximize Z = 10x1 + 12x2 + 7x3 Subject to: 20x1 + 15x2 + 10x3 <= 300 10x1 + 5x2 <= 100 x1 + 2x3 <= 50 The above is my scanned work from one of the assignment files, don't know how to set up tables here. Hopefully I didn't make any careless errors. The final tableau shows a degenerate solution, due to the tie in the pivot row, causing value of zero in the other unchosen basic variable s2. But from what I have learnt from the text, degeneracy will cause you to loop back to the same solution, but this solution somehow don't loop. Did I make a mistake, or is it actually a normal situation? My answer reports that final tableau as the optimal solution. i.e. x1 = 0, x2 = 20, x3 = 0 giving an objective function value of Z = $240.
