I am trying to write the solutions that can be read from each simplex tableau.
X1 x2 x3 s1 s2 s3 x
0 2 0 5 2 2 015
0 3 1 0 1 2 0 2
7 4 0 0 3 5 035

0 4 0 0 4 3 240
How do I express the subscript numbers after X and the other numbers in the first row.

What is a simplex tableau?

I have no idea. I am taking classes on line and the book we are to follow explains nothing or it is off in other directions. Many students complain because some methods in the book no one has ever heard of

It is a cookbok method for finding the vertices and finding the max or min in a linear programming problem. Here is a link to how to set it up:

I also have never heard of this method
I did a Google search and one of the pages showed this
http://math.uww.edu/~mcfarlat/sprob.htm
perhaps comparing what you have in your text with this might help 
Thank you

Went to both sites and yours was the easiest did the sample problem and came up with the right answer. I have problems with this class but thanks much.
