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 x-1>=0 y>=0 I got 12?
you still need help in this?
Yes :) I just need the answer though because I have already solved and just want to see if my answer is correct.
I 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.
That is, both x >= 3 and y >= 2 satisfy the other 2 constrains, so we are okay doing it.
Nope, solved the system analitically.
Cool :) You can do it without graphing?

Nice! Thanks a lot for your help =)
