Linear programming using the Simplex Method 2009-12-28
From William:
A gold processor has two sources of gold ore, source A and source B. In order to keep his plant running, at least three tons of ore must be processed each day. Ore from source A costs $20 per ton to process, and ore from source B costs $10 per ton to process. Costs must be kept to less than $80 per day. Moreover, Federal Regulations require that the amount of ore from source B cannot exceed twice the amount of ore from source A. If ore from source A yields 2 oz. of gold per ton, and ore from source B yields 3 oz. of gold per ton, how many tons of ore from both sources must be processed each day to maximize the amount of gold extracted subject to the above constraints? I need a linear programming solution or algorithm of the simplex method solution. Not a graphical solution. Thanks.

From Dean:
I am an investor. If I lend to someone on January 1, 1999, $1000 to be paid back interest at 2% per year (simple interest, ie not compounded), and on July 15, 1999, I lend the same person $1,500 more (total loan is now $2,500) but at 18%, and once again on October 15, 1999, I lend to the same person another $1,500, and the person pays me back the principle($4,000) and interest on January 1,2001: What is the total (principle plus interest) due me? The tougher question is: what was my blended rate of return on my total outlay of money? Is there a formula you can give me so that I can perform my own calculations?
