6. (10 pts) Initial solution: x11=20, x21=10, x22=20, x23=10, x33=30. Prices u1=$10, u2=$8, u3=$10,v1=$14, v2=$15, v3=$13. Add x12: increase x12, x21 by 20, decrease x11 and x22 by 20.

Spring 2016 AMS 303 Second Test
1.(4 pts) : (x sub 3)^3.
2. (12 pts) a (-,oo), b(h-,1), c(g-,1), d(i-,1), e(ki-,1), f(a+,1), g(b+,1) h(f+,1), i(f+,1), j(c+ or e+,1), k(d+,1), z(j+,1). One new solution using c-j is b-g, c-j, d-i, e-k, f-h; other is b-h, c-g, d-k, e-j, f-i.
3. (15 pts) a) initial digital sum is 011 = 3; b) remove 1 from pile 3; c) remove 2 from pile 1 or 3 or 4; d) g(0)=0, g(1)=1, g(2)=0, g(3)=1, g(4)=2, g(5)=3, g(6)=2, sum is 1, remove 1 from pile 1.
4. (12 pts) (1/4)[(b+w)^8 +(b^2+w^2)^4 + 2(b+w)^2(b^2 + w^2)^3].
5. (8 pts) Possible. Number of available wins (L 2, T 2, V 3) equals number of games to be played. Many possible solutions.
NOTE that there is an error in the table because it says the Bears have 8 more total games but only 6 games against the Lions, Tigers and Vampires.
6. (10 pts) Initial solution: x11=20, x12=10, x22=20, x23=20, x33=20. Prices u1=$10, u2=$8, u3=$9, v1=$15, v2=$14, v3=$13. Select either x13 or x32. For x31, increase x31, x12, and x23 by 20. and reduce x11, x22, x33 by 20.
