Hello, please help me to find the maximum and minimum of the following objective function (if they do exist) if there's no maximum state the reason.
then I'm given a graph with these points
I would say the maximum is 24 at the points (0,6) however, that's wrong, according to my textbook, there's no maximum, why????
concerning the minimum, I agree with my textbook, the minimum is 10 at the points (2,1)
As Captain Black said, please post the entire problem. I can guess that you find max and min values in some convex set with vertices at those points (including the condition, that you did not state, that neither x nor y can be negative). If that is the case, then your text is right- there is no maximum because you can take x and y as large as you please. Note that the convex set having those vertices is unbounded. The region between those edges and the origin is concave, not convex. In any case, what was the problem, really?
Hello, this is what I'm asked:
In the following problem, use the given feasible region determined by the constraint inequalities to find the maximum of the given objective function (if they exist)
then I'm given the function : f=3x+4y
and then I'm given a graph which contains the following points:
