In the exam question for 2022.02.16, I pivoted with x1. I used the logic that I need to reduce y0 from 0 to -1 hence in order to do that I need to reduce x1 (y0=5x0=4x1). Is the following approach and solution correct ?

After Pivotting X1, resulting constraints values are within the limits.

Your solution looks plausible to me. If we consider the geometry of the problem, we can rewrite the constraints as follows:

  •       5*x0 - 4*x1 ≤ -1
  •      -3*x0 + 7*x1 ≤  5

and thus also as

  •     x1 ≥ 1/4 + 5/4*x0 (blue)
  •     x1 ≤ 5/7 + 3/7*x0 (red)

Hence, solutions are above the blue and below the red line below:


The simplex algorithm starts in (x0,x1) = (0,0) and moves to one of the intersection points. The example solution moves to (x0,x1) = (-1/5,0) and your solution moves to (x0,x1) = (0,1/4) which are both valid solutions.
