You decide to make and sell two different gift baskets at your local outdoor market. Basket A contains 3 cookies, 6 chocolates, and 2 jars of jam and makes a profit of $12. Basket B contains 6 cookies, 3 chocolates, and 2 jars of jam and makes a profit of $15. You have just made 48 cookies, 36 chocolates, and 18 jars of jam. How many of each type of gift basket should you make to maximize the profit? a) State what you assign to x and y. Write the objective function. b) Write the three constraint inequalities. c) Find the axes intercepts of each of the above inequalities.

For part (a) it is required to assign x and y and write the objective function. Let x be the number of gift Basket A purchased and y be the number of gift Basket B purchased. The objective function of the given information is: objective function: maxmize z=12x+15y

For part (b) it is required to write the constraints inequality. Constraints are: 3x+6y45x+2y166x+3y362x+y122x+2y18x+y9

For part (c) It is required to find the intercepts of each inequalities. x+2y16x16+2y161x6+y121 intercept of the above inequality is (16,0) and (0,8) 2x+y122x12+y121x6+y121x16+2y161x6+y121 intercept of the above inequality is (6,0) and (0,12) x+y<=9x/9+y/9<=1 intercept of the above inequality is (9,0) and (0,9)

describe the sets of points in space whose coordinates satisfy the given inequalities or combinations of equations and inequalities. x2+y2+z21
asked 2022-05-20
In the euclidean space, the points ( x , y , z ) belonging to a regular octahedron are those that satisfy the inequalities
± x ± y ± z a
where a 0. These eight inequalities can be divided into two groups of four according to the number (even or odd) of negative signs they contain. For example, the inequalities
x y + z a x + y + z a x + y z a x y z a
all have one or three negative signs and the points satisfying these form a tetrahedron. The other four inequalities correspond to the dual tetrahedron of the first, which shows that the intersection of two regular dual tetrahedra form a regular octahedron. Moreover, the vertices of the two tetrahedra can be seen as the eight vertices of a cube.
I am wondering if there exists a similar relationship between regular polytopes in four dimensions. As it is another case of a regular cross-polytope, the hexadecachoron (or 16-cell) is defined by the sixteen inequalities
± x ± y ± z ± w a .
If one were to take the eight inequalities containing an odd number of negative signs, say
x y z w a x + y z w a x y + z w a x y z + w a x + y + z w a x + y z + w a x y + z + w a x + y + z + w a
which 4-polytope would be obtained ? I doubt it would be a regular 5-cell, since (obviously) the number of cells and the number of hyperplanes don't add up. Besides, the intersection of the two 4-polytopes corresponding to the two sets of eight inequalities should technically correspond to the 16-cell.
The tesseract, having eight cells, could be a candidate, but I have been unable to show that these eight inequalities define one (or any other 4-polytope). Any ideas?

Solve the system of linear inequalities with parameters
(*) { 0 2 x + 2 y 3 b + 3 a 2 0 2 x 3 y + 6 b + 3 a 1 0 x 1 0 y 2 0 a 1 0 b 1
Here x,y are unknown variables and a,b are parameters.
My attempt. By adding the inequalities with some coeficients I separated the variables and get the simple system
(**) { 0 y + 6 a 5 , 0 x + 9 a + 3 b 8.
and I am able to solve it. But the solutions of the last system are not solution of the initial system!
Maple and wolframAlpha cant solve the system.
P.S.1 For a = 63 100 and b = 59 100 Maple gives the solutions
{ x = 1 , 9 50 y , y 11 25 } , { x = 3 / 2 y + 127 100 , 9 50 < y , y < 11 25 } , { 9 50 < y , x < 1 , y < 11 25 , 3 / 2 y + 127 100 < x } , { y = 11 25 , 61 100 x , x < 1 } , { x = 3 / 2 y + 127 100 , 11 25 < y , y < 127 150 } , { 11 25 < y , x < 2 y + 47 25 , y < 127 150 , 3 / 2 y + 127 100 < x } , { x = 2 y + 47 25 , 11 25 < y , y < 127 150 } , { x = 0 , 127 150 y , y 47 50 } , { y = 127 150 , x 14 75 , 0 < x } , { 0 < x , 127 150 < y , x < 2 y + 47 25 , y < 47 50 } , { x = 2 y + 47 25 , 127 150 < y , y < 47 50 }

I have a personal problem I want to solve. I have a system of linear inequalities with 97 unknowns and 150000 ineqaulities, I think formal notation of the problem should be something like this
[ x 00000101 x 00000197 x 15000001 x 15000097 ] × [ y 1 y 97 ] = [ z 1 z 150000 ]
z { z i | i [ 1 , 150000 ] } , z i > 0
We also know that x leftmost matrix x { 1 , 0 , 1 } and there is exacly 5 1s and 5 −1's in every row in leftmost matrix. So, each row sums up to 0.
What I want to do is to determine if I can order yi's and if so, I want to find an algorithm to order them.

Suppose we have a 1-dimensional differential inequality
d x d t x x 3
We can apply the Comparison principle to claim that if y ( t ) is the solution to d y d t = y y 3 , then x ( t ) y ( t ) (assuming x ( 0 ) y ( 0 ). Can we extend similar argument to a 2-dimensional system? For example, let us consider the following system of equations
d x 1 d t = x 1 x 2 , d x 2 d t x 1 + x 2 x 2 4 x 1 2
Is the solution to following
d y 1 d t = y 1 y 2 , d y 2 d t = y 1 + y 2 y 2 4 y 1 2
related with the solution of the original problem. Specifically, can we apply the Comparison principle to first say that x 2 ( t ) y 2 ( t ) and then subsequently use it to claim x 1 ( t ) y 1 ( t )?

Are the following systems of inequalities the same?
Suppose x , y R, and S 1 is a system of inequalities:
S 1 = { x y 1 x + 2 y 1 3 x 5 y 2 } = { x 1 + y x 2 y 1 x 2 + 5 y 3 }
I eliminate x from S 1 to obtain S 2 :
S 2 = { 1 + y 2 y 1 2 + 5 y 3 2 y 1 } = { 2 y 2 + 5 y 6 y 3 } = { 2 y 5 y }
Therefore, I know that 5 y < . Let S 3 denote the following system of inequalities
S 3 = { x y 1 x + 2 y 1 3 x 5 y 2 5 y < }
My question is, is S 3 = S 1 ?
