    Ok but what if you've got X<4Y or something
    Pick a random point above and below the line, see which one fits the inequality, shade the other side

    Thanks for tagging me in!

    So 4X is the total cost?
    No, its 3y+x, im not 100% sure how though

    I just want a long list of every definition we'd ever need to know. I get thrown off when I see questions like define a path. Or when it asks how we found the shortest route

    I don't get why there's a third dummy (the one between G and I). Surely just a solid line would achieve the same thing? Help please!
    Out of 5, what would i have gotten for that? That's the hardest i've ever seen

    How would you show that K depends on G if it were a solid line?

    Jan 16 Q 5 D:

    Can someone explain to me how the integer solution for part D is 3,-4? I mean I understand the x-coordinate being 3, but not why the y is -4? Surely the Y value of -5 etc gives a smaller value?...

    Thanks.

    It pauses between tests, so by the time it's on the 119th scanner it pauses 119 times, but it doesn't have to after the 120th, because it would have finished.

    Ahhhh thank you so much!! I somehow managed to block out the fact that each 'test' means going round the whole thing once...me being stupid!

    3, because K's dependency is wrong.

    This is going to sound so dumb but I don't go to school so I don't know much about exam regulations etc... Can we write in pencil?? I get that it probably won't scan or whatever, but what do you do if you draw a line wrong on a given graph or s/t -do you just scribble it out and draw again? Cos that kinda makes it so messy, right?

    Y=-5 doesn't lie in the feasible region; check (3,-5) in the inequality 26x-50y <= 325

    Definitely draw your graphs in pencil, you can write in pencil too, but most people will tell you not to.

    Graphs in pencil. Ensure pencil line is dark i.e. do not press lightly. A more sensitive scan is performed go graphs an diagrams so we can use pencil. All other writing back pen.

    What about dijkstras and forward/backward scans? I usually make mistakes so I rub it out

    If you ensure its dark/ you press reasonably (not like sketching in art) it should be alright- just the more sensitive scan will definitely not be used so do make sure it is dark.
