hi i saw a question in a book for liner programming in solving the question i faced three inequalities as follow 1 3x+2y<= 5000 2 1x+.5y<= 1600 3 4x+5y<= 9600 in book they select 1 and 3 inequalities for solving simultaneous equation, i cant understand the logic for this. anyone know the logic? thanks in advances

Didn't you graph these? That should be the first thing you do with problems like this! First, those are "dashes" after the "1", "2", and "3" right? I first mistook them for minus signs! To graph "3x+ 2y<= 5000", Graph the line "3x+ 2y= 5000" and, since, x= 0, y= 0 lies "to the left and below" that line, that is the set of points "to the left and below" that line. Similarly for the other inequalities. Graphing (as I did in about three minutes), you should see that the two lines given by "x+ .5y= 1600" Also, did you read the entire solution to the problem? They can't get the answer by finding only the intersection of the lines 1 and 3. They would also need to find the intersection of lines 2 and 3. The intersection of lines 1 and 2 are above the line 3 so not relevant.

thanks dear country boy as i understood, because this is a profit maximizing problem and so the optimal point is on intersection of line that is more far from the origin this mean " the intersection of line 1 and 3" and for finding the exact amount, equation 1 and 3 must be selected. the intersection of line 2 with other line is not a optimal point so must forgive this one. thank you very much again.
