problem 1)a) describe the role of operations research in decision making?
b) prepare down the limitations of linear programming?
c) Why do we add slack and subtract surplus variables for solving problems by simplex method?
d) Obtain the dual of linear program Max.
Z = 3x1 + 5x2 + 7x3
Subject to: x1 +x2+ 3x3 ≤ 10
4x1- x2 +2x3 ≥ 15
where x1, x2 ≥ 0 and x3 is unrestricted.
