Dear PRAJAY

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.
 
First define the decision vairables of the problem.
 
Define the objective function (Maximize or minimize)
 
Define the constraints of the function.
 
Define the non-negative constraints (if any).
 
From the above steps formulate the linear programming problem.

Graph the given lines.
 
Take a test point and find out the feasible region.
 
Mark the corner points in the graph.
 
Tabulate the points and the corresponding values of the function.
 
Now mark that corner point which optimizes the given function from the table.
 
Wish you all the best!!!!!
