In reference to sample problem 3-5 (page 80), explain one of the Excel equations in column J.;2. In reference to the sample problem 3-5, go to the Data tab and select one of the Solver parameters and explain how Solver uses it in solving the problem.;3.;Chapter 3 examines several types of linear programming problems.;Explain one of the problem types including the Solver set-up strategy for solving such a problem type.;What are the typical the decision variables associated with the problem?;What types of constrains are typically encountered in such a problem. Give examples.;Module 4 Discussion;**1** IMPORTATN - PLEASE UNDERSTAND AND APPLY THE FOLLOWING ****;Students are directed to select one (1) discussion question to respond to for their initial response.;For the initial response, students must select a question that has not been answered;however, if all questions have been answered, they are to choose the question with the last initial response;but must provide an original answer.;**2** IMPORTATN - Please be reminded of what is required;1) your discussion (worth 9pts).;2) 2 student replies (worth 3 pts, each).;3) please use your own words from information presented in course text.;Please use one of the following discussion questions to discuss. please try not to repeat question that another student may have already discussed.;unless, off course, all questions have been discussed.;===========================================================================;Module 4;1. Explain how a change in resource availability can affect the optimal solution of a problem.;2. Explain how a change in an objective function coefficient can affect the optimal solution of a problem.;3. What is the 100% rule? What is its role in analyzing the impact of simultaneous changes in model input data values?;4. What is the pricing out procedure? How can a firm benefit from using the pricing out procedure?;5. What is a sensitivity report? How is it used?;6. How do we detect the presence of alternative optimal solutions from a Solver Sensitivity Report?;7. What is the shadow price? Give an example. Why would a firm find information regarding the shadow price of a resource useful?;8. Explain slack and surplus. Give an example of each.;9. Explain binding and non-binding constraints. How can you tell in the sensitivity report that a constraint is binding.
