What will happen if the objective function coefficient for variable 1 increases by 10?

Answer

### Nothing. The optimal solution and the objective function value at the optimal solution will not change.

### The objective function value at the optimal solution will change, but the optimal solution will remain the same.

### The new model will need to be resolved to determine the optimal solution and dual values.

### None of the above is true.
