I am about to do a paper about distributing subjects to students with the constraints on: number of subjects that the student need, number of students whom these subjects will be distributed to, and the number of students that every subject can handle (for example, 50 for math 1 and so on). There might be other constraints to be considered, these are just what I came up from now. My adviser told me to use BIP, so 0 if the subject will not be given and 1 if it will be. But I have still no idea what to do. Can I have some help on this? Thank you so much! =)

Hey Cadbury. What software can you use? Do you have to do everything by paper and pencil? The reason I ask is that there are computational platforms that can implement linear programming as well as other optimization problems whether it involve graphs or other structures. Basically you could use something like MATLAB and some plugins or codes or some other computational platform to do it.
