In an earlier post, we wrote out a standard minimization problem from an application. Now we’ll solve that problem by finding the dual standard maximization problem and applying the Simplex Method.

This process is covered in Section 4.4 of the textbook. For complete details on the process, consult this section and the many examples contained in this section. I will assume that you have looked over this section and are familiar with carrying out row operations on a matrix.
