    Does anyone know how to do a problem like this? I dont understand this at all.

    I could really use some advice on how to approach it, thanks.

    Find the complete optimal solution to this linear-programming problem:

    Min 3X + 3Y
    s.t. 12X + 4Y > 48
    10X + 5Y > 50
    4X + 8Y > 32
    X , Y > 0

    What method(s) have you been taught? The (Dantzig) Simplex Method?

    Code:
    		Min	  3X + 3Y		
    		s.t.	12X + 4Y  >  48
    			10X + 5Y  >  50
    			  4X + 8Y  >  32
    	   		        X , Y  >  0

    It would almost certainly be a graphical method, except that as formulated it has no solution.

    (constraints should all he <= or >= otherwise the vertices of the feasible region are not in the
    feasible region and so cannot be solutions)
