## Beautiful_Lier96 2 years ago Find the value of x and y for which the objective function c= 3x+2y has the minimum value, subject to the constraints described in the system of inequalities below.: A. x= -1, y= 3 B. x= 1, y= 1 C. x= 5, y= 0 D. x= 5, y= 1

@dumbcow

what are the constraints?

3. Beautiful_Lier96

what do you mean ?

4. dumbcow

"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

kayy, so i think the answer choice would be D ?

8. Beautiful_Lier96

Am i right @dumbcow
