Hello, i've been looking up on this question at yahoo answers
Can anyone help with the simplex method? - Yahoo! Answers
i'm stuck on this part below
To decide which number in the chart to focus on (CIRCLE) before you MOVE to another "corner point" (easy to see in two dimensions), do two things:
1) find the smallest number in the last row to select a column to focus on and
2) find which row in the top two gives a smallest ratio of the column value divided by the RHS value to select a row
i'm stuck on the second part finding the which one to pick, and how to find the ratio, i know i have to divide the RHS, 50 and 100 by something in the top two rows but what, could someone explain this a little further for me plz
i'm also now stuck on
it said to pick the smallest number, and below it says x3 is the smallest, surly it would be x4?
in our case, 1) selects column x3 and 2) says either row one or row two is fine (with equal ratios). Let's select row one. CIRCLE the number in row one and column x3.
again any help would be great
