    "subject to the constraints described in the system of inequalities below.:" that part.... the system of inequalities is not included in post, these determine which points can be used in the objective function, then you pick the point that yields the minimum value

    oooh sorry the contraints are: x+y ( > or = ) 2 -x+y ( > or = ) -4 y ( > or = ) 1, y( < or = ) 3

    ok since this is multiple choice, the easy way is to test each point and see if it is region described by inequalities example: point (-1,3) x+y >= 2 --> -1+3 = 2 ..... works -x +y >= -4 ---> -(-1)+3 = 4 .... works y >= 1 --> 3>1 ........works y <= 3 --> 3=3 .......works now test the other points
