Linear Programming


linear programming involves modelling a real life situation using a series of inequalities as constraints and then finding an optimal solution for the situation.

most of the problems involve the same steps and procedures and require skill with sketching inequalities and solving pairs of simultaneous equations.

the most difficult part is often extracting the equations from the problem.

Key Skills

  • sketch more than one inequality on the same graph
  • solve optimisation problems by linear programming
