Well, the LP problem says:
minimize f = 8x+10y+18z
subject to
2/3x+y+2z=20
0<=x<=9, 0<=y<=15, 0<=z<=3.
And then my teacher eliminates z, and he gets:
minimize f=180+2x+y
subject to
42<=2x+3y<=60
0<=x<=9, 0<=y<=15.
Well, I know how my teacher got to f=180+2x+y, but how did he get 42<=2x+3y<=60? I know 60 comes from 20*3 (to make 2/3 an integer), but I don't know where 42 comes from.
