1. If you rewrite the constraints in terms of y, for example,
2x+y≤30 as
y≤-2x + 30
then you can graph the constraints.
When y≤ something, then the feasible region is below the line, if y>0, the feasible region is above the line.
For x≥0, it is on the right of the y-axis.

What do you get for the corner points?

Once you have the corner points in the form of (x,y), you can evaluate
Z(x,y) in terms of x and y and hence compare the value of Z that maximizes its value.

There are two solutions to | 16x - 5 | = 3. The greatest solution is ___. Since the expression, 16x - 5, can be either positive or negative, solve for both. 16x - 5 = 3 16x = 8 x = .5 -(16x - 5) = 3 -16x + 5 = 3 -16x = -2 x = 1/8
