Linear Programming: Optimization
I would like to learn how to solve this problem without Excel Solver. Can someone please show me the steps on how to simultaneously solve the equations from this problem? Thanks.
A farmer has 900 acres of land. The farmer is going to plant each acre with corn, soybean, or wheat.
Each acre planted with wheat yields 2k profit.
Each acre with soybean yields 2.5k profit.
Each acre with wheat yields 3k profit.
The farmer has 100 workers.
The farme has 150 tons of fertilizer.
Corn requires: .1 worker, .2 tons of fertilizer
Soubean requires: .3 worker, .1 tons of fertilizer
Wheat requires: .2 worker, .4 tons of fertilizer
2000Corn + 2500Soy + 3000Wheat = Max Profit
XCorn + YSoy + Zwheat <= 900
.1Corn + .3Soy + .2wheat <=100
.2Corn + .3Soy +.4wheat <= 150
