    Thumbs up Mixed system of constraints..

    Dear Forum I am having trouble figuring out , how to handle a mixed system of constraints in a linear programming system; i.e. a mixture of ≤ and ≥?

    If anyone could help me figure this one out it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks , - AC-

    You convert them to all be of the same type by multiplying the ones you don't want by -1 which reverses the sense on the inequalities.
