I would really appreciate if someone would actually solve this for me and see if my answer is correct. Thanks!
Find the minimum value of the expression C = 2x + 3y, where x and y are subject to the constraints
3y+4x>=18
3y+x>=9
x1>=0
y>=0
I got 12?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got the same answer. I multiplied eq. 2 by 1 and add in eq.1. So I got x >= 3 and y >= 2. As we want the minimum, we plug in x = 3 and y = 2 and get C = 12.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That is, both x >= 3 and y >= 2 satisfy the other 2 constrains, so we are okay doing it.
