## What is linear optimization?

**Linear optimization**, also known as linear programming, is a mathematical method for optimizing a linear objective function subject to linear constraints. It is a powerful tool for decision-making in various fields, such as engineering, economics, and business. In linear optimization, we aim to find the values of decision variables that maximize or minimize the objective function while satisfying the constraints.

The general form of a linear optimization problem is:
