- The worksheet we have created so far in this chapter…contains all of the data and formulas we need…to find our solution.…In this movie, we will define a Solver model…that uses the worksheets, data, and formulas,…along with constraints on values…that a valid solution can include…to find the lowest cost mixture of ingredients…that meets our criteria.…My sample file is the…NonlinearMixture_Model - Excel workbook.…You can find that in the chapter 03 folder…of the exercise files collection.…This workbook has three different sections.…
The first are the costs and number of gallons available…of each of our inputs.…Then there are the changing cells,…which indicate the number of gallons…for each of the inputs we used.…And we calculate the gallons produced,…the octane of the mixture, and compare those…to the target number of gallons…and to the target octanes elsewhere in the worksheet.…And at the bottom, we calculate the total cost…of all of the mixtures.…So let's get into Solver and start creating our model.…
I'll go to the DATA tab on the ribbon and click Solver.…
