Use of this system is pretty intuitive. Enter your linear programming problem (with two variables x and y) in the space below, and press "Solve" to solve without showing the feasible region, or "Graph" to solve it and also show the feasible region for your problem. Press "Example" to see an example of a linear programming problem already set up.

- To solve a linear programming problem with more than two unknowns, use the Simplex Method Tool.
- In some browsers, you might have to jiggle the graph window size a little to make the graph appear.
- Solution Display Some browsers (including some versions of Internet Explorer) use a sans serif proportional width font in text boxes. This will cause the display of solutions to appear a little messy. You can remedy this by changing the "Sans Serif" font in your browser preferences to "Courier" or some other fixed-width font, and then reloading the page.
- Warning The graphing routine will tax your browser, and it might crash and cause your computer to crash with it. Thus, you should save all your work before pressing "Graph"..
