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 0|15|
|0 3 1 0 1 2 0| 2|
|7 4 0 0 3 5 0|35|
|____________________________|
|0 -4 0 0 4 3 2|40|

How do I express the subscript numbers after X and the other numbers in the first row.

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/s-prob.htm

perhaps comparing what you have in your text with this might help
