PowerCo has three plants that must provide enough electricity to four cities.  Shipping to each city from the various plants costs varying amounts.  Moreover each plant has a set supply of energy that it can send to the various cities.  The specifics of this information are outlined in the chart below:

 

 

 

From              City 1          City 2          city 3         city 4        Supply

 

Plant 1            $8                 $6              $10           $9               35

 

Plant 2            $9                 $12            $13           $7               50

 

Plant 3            $14               $9              $16           $5               40

 

Demand           45                20              30             30

 

 

How can PowerCo best minimize its costs?
