## Now we will solve this LPP Problem

with Simplex Method and if the
obtained Feasible Solution fails to
include the integer constraint then we
will introduce the GOMORIAN CUT to
get the desired result.

## In this table, X1 will enter and S1 will depart.

Here all Cj-Zj 0 but as we can see this Basic Feasible Solution (X1=4/7 and X2=12/7) does
not comply with the Integer Constraint.
So, now we will use the GOMORYs CUT.

## Choose the largest fraction of XBi and name it as Fk.

In that row under the label of variables/slack/surplus, break the fractions into an integer +

fraction. If the fraction is negative then break into a negative integer and a positive fraction.

will be 0.

+ =

## Now we will use the Dual Simplex Method.

Mentioned below is the Initial Table.

Here all Cj-Zj 0 and moreover the solution is also feasible but we need to have integers in

the solution.

So, we will repeat the whole process again and introduce a new Gomorian Constraint.

## Now, adding the Gomorian Slack Variable (where G2

will be 0)

+ =

We need to take case of feasibility, so we will go for the Dual Simplex Method.

Here all Cj-Zj 0, so optimality and feasibility both are satisfied and now the solutions

## also comply with the Integer constraint.

Solution
X1 = 0
X2 = 2
Max Z = 2X1 + 2X2 = 2(0) + 2(1) = 4

Alternative Solution
X1 = 1
X2 = 1
Max Z = 2X1 + 2X2 = 2(1) + 2(1) = 4
