Test 2 is Thursday, October 1.
The test will be on Secs. 3.1 - 3.2.

Calculators may be used for arithmetic only.

**Please bring a blue book for taking the test.** If you do not, we will still grade your test, but we will not be responsible if part of it is lost.

**You may bring to the test one sheet of paper with whatever you find useful written on it.** (You may use both sides of the paper if you want.)

Things you should be able to do:

Recognize standard and nonstandard linear programming problems.

Set up a linear programming problem, even a nonstandard one: identify the variables, write an equation for what is to be maximized or minimized, write the constraints as a system of inequalities.

Use the simplex method to solve both standard and nonstandard linear programming problems.

For problems with just two variables, be able to graph the feasible region; label boundary lines as x=0, y=0, u=0 (u is a slack variable), etc.; find the basic solution associated with a simplex tableau and find the corresponding point on the graph.
