1 Answer
Please see below.
Explanation:
We use Solver Addin for linear programming in Excel 2010.
The Solver Addin is a Microsoft Office Excel addin (a supplemental program that adds custom commands or custom features to Microsoft Office.) program that is available when you install Microsoft Office or Excel.
To use it in Excel, however, you need to load it first and for this

Click the Microsoft Office Button Button image, and then click Excel Options, which is on the bottom bar.

Click AddIns, and then in the Manage box, select Excel Addins (at the bottom) and Click Go.

In the AddIns available box, select the Solver Addin check box, and then click OK.
If Solver Addin is not listed in the AddIns available box, click Browse to locate the addin.
If you get prompted that the Solver Addin is not currently installed on your computer, click Yes to install it.
After you load the Solver Addin, the Solver command is available in the Analysis group on the Data tab.
For solving linear programming problems plenty of help is available online. For example here asalso on Youtube. I found a good PDF document here.
