The correct answer to this question is C: 2X + 7Y ≥ 100. Linear programming is also known as LP and also called linear optimization. It is a method in mathematical programming that focuses on mathematical optimization, as it tries to achieve the best possible outcome (e.g. lowest cost or maximum profit). Linear programming is used in mathematical models with requirements that are represented by linear relationships.
Although linear programming is most often used in the mathematics field of study, it is also occasionally used to solve problems in the fields of business, economics, and engineering, and in the industries of transportation, energy, telecommunications, and manufacturing.
