What is Linear Programming?
The purpose of linear programming is to optimize some objective function given a set of constraints on the values of x and y. These constraints are usually provided as a system of inequalities.
When the system of inequality constraints are graphed, their solution space usually forms a closed region which is called the feasibility region.
Linear programming says that the maximum and minimum values of the objective function will occur at the (x, y) values that are one of the vertices of the feasible region.
