The development of mathematical programming has risen hopes that this is just
the right tool to solve the problem. The price system is a vector which has to satisfy some
conditions imposed on it in advance. We are searching for a vector which would be
“rational” or since it became fashionable to use this word “optimal”. Mathematical
programming supplies us with techniques of finding out the optimal vector in the set of
feasible vectors.In this paper we present a a linear programming approach to optimal
utilization of good quality coking coal.
