    Solving Linear Programming:

    How do I go about doing this programming problem??

    Sketch the region of feasibility and solve the linear programming problem:
    Maximize C = 4x-5y, subject to:
    x ≥ 2
    y ≥ 0
    x + y ≤ 7
    X + 2y
    What does this mean?
    Any Formulas I could use?
    I can probably sketch the region of feasibility, but how do i solve?
    Thanks so much.

    Once you have the region of feasibility, substitute each of the corner points into the objective function. See which gives you the maximum C.
