What is linear programming?

  • LP( Linear Programming) is also called Linear Optimization.
  • In a special case of mathematical programming, linear programming is also known as mathematical optimization.
  • It is a method to give the correct solution or best output in the mathematical model.
  • In the technique is used to find the variable values of the given objective function such as maximize or minimize.
  • In linear programming, constraints define the range and objective function defines the amount to be optimised.
  • Linear programming is mostly used in Mathematics and it can be apply in the various field of study.
  • Linear programs can be expressed in canonical form.
