I am taking Linear Programming and I haven't completed the course yet, but here is my question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've notice that all these problems could have been solved just as easily with Lagrange multipliers.

We got a bunch of linear inequality constraints and an obj function, we can use Lagrange.

Why do we have all of these weird theories about corner points and duals and all?
