The table below records the profits that are made when one unit of material is sold by factories A,B, C to dealers L,M,N, P. The output of each factory and demand from each dealer are given in brackets
( A,B,C ) -> L(30) M(30) N(30) P(45)
A(100) -> 25 30 20 20
B(20) -> 30 25 15 10
C(15) -> 10 35 5 30

Find the allocation which maximises the profits for the factories.
(Hint: this is similar to a transportation problem . You need to decide which inequalities should be reversed.)

Hi grandy, You have to subtract each element in the table from the largest element of the table and apply a transportation algorithm such as the North West Corner Rule or the Minimum Cost Method. The following article will give you a good description about each of the transportation algorithms.
