Simplex Method Calculator – Quick & Accurate Solutions

This tool helps you solve linear programming problems using the simplex method for optimal solutions.

Simplex Method Calculator

The Simplex Method Calculator helps solve linear programming problems with multiple variables and constraints. Enter the number of variables and constraints, define your objective function and constraints, and click on “Calculate” to get the result.

How to Use:

  1. Specify the number of variables and constraints.
  2. Click “Create Matrix” to generate input fields.
  3. Fill in the coefficients for the objective function and constraints.
  4. Click “Calculate” to get the solution.

How It Calculates:

This calculator uses the simplex algorithm to find the maximum value of a linear objective function, subject to linear equality and inequality constraints. The algorithm iteratively moves towards the optimal solution by improving the objective function value at each step.


  • Currently, it can handle up to 10 variables and constraints.
  • Only maximization problems are supported in this implementation.
