2.7. You are given the following linear programming model in algebraic form, where x1 and x2 are the decision variables and Z is the value of the overall measure of performance.
Maximize Z 5 x1 1 2x2
subject to
Constraint on resource 1: x1 + x2 ≤ 5 (amount available)
Constraint on resource 2: x1 + 3 x2 ≤ 9 (amount available)
and x1 ≥ 0    x2 ≥ 0

b. Incorporate this model into a spreadsheet.
e. Use Solver to solve this model.
