A feasible solution states that from Factory I, 25 tons have to be transported to warehouse 3 and 45 tons to Warehouse 4.  Similarly 30 tons and 25 tons were transported from Factory II to warehouse 1 and Warehouse 3 respectively.  However, from Factory III, 55 tons and 35 tones were transported to warehouse 1 and warehouse 2 respectively.

Is this transportation schedule optimum? If not, modify it and obtain optimum solution and optimum cost.
