Slacka. is the difference between the left and right sides of a constraint.b. is the amount by which the left side of a ≤ constraint is smaller than the right side.c. is the amount by which the left side of a ≥ constraint is larger than the right side.d. exists for each variable in a linear programming problem.
To find the optimal solution to a linear programming problem using the graphical methoda. find the feasible point that is the farthest away from the origin.b. find the feasible point that is at the highest location.c. find the feasible point that is closest to the origin.d. None of the alternatives is correct.

A constraint that does not affect the feasible region is aa. non-negativity constraint.b. redundant constraint.c. standard constraint.d. slack constraint.
All of the following statements about a redundant constraint are correct EXCEPTa. A redundant constraint does not affect the optimal solution.b. A redundant constraint does not affect the feasible region.c. Recognizing a redundant constraint is easy with the graphical solution method.d. At the optimal solution, a redundant constraint will have zero slack.
