Abstract

This paper introduces a new and uniform method of Linear Programming optimization problems for both standard and non-standard cases. Using this method, all the linear programming (LPP) optimization problems can be solved using slack variables only by a simple transformation. Thus, it eliminates the use of surplus and artificial variables and the need to use the big M method. The efficacy of this method has been shown by few examples which gave same results using the traditional methods.
