Request Description

You are faced with a linear programming objective function of:

Max P = \$20X + \$30Y

and constraints of:

3X + 4Y = 24 (Constraint A)

5X – Y = 18 (Constraint B)

You discover that the shadow price for Constraint A is 7.5 and the shadow price for Constraint B is 0. Which of these statements is TRUE?

A.   The most you would want to pay for an additional unit of A would be \$7.50.

B.   You can change quantities of X and Y at no cost for Constraint B. C.   For every additional unit of the objective function you create, the price of A rises by \$7.50.

D.   For every additional unit of the objective function you create, you lose 0 units of B.
