Chapter 13, page 535, question 13. Solve this problem with the simplex method.
Supplement D, page 430, question nine. Solve this problem with the simplex method.

Problems to Solve Using Simulation Techniques

Supplement E, page 17, question nine. For this problem, create an  Excel model that simulates weekly sales for 500 weeks and calculates  average number of cars sold, revenue per week and a frequency table of  cars sold.

For each problem, submit your solution and a brief explanation of  your solution. In addition, show your model formulation for the problems  solved with linear programming. Your formulation should clearly  indicate the decision variables, the objective function (including  whether this is a minimization or maximization problem) and the  constraints.
