Objective Functions


“What is a function that we want to maximize or minimize?”


When working with systems of equations, we often have functions that we want to maximize. To illustrate, we might have a cost function f(x) = 18x + 15y which is dependent on two variables x and y. This function is known as the objective function and is used in mathematical operations everywhere.
