# Excel Solver Guide (Easy and Step by Step)

This article contains a list of articles that explains this topic step wise. Follow the steps given in these articles systematically to solve complex problems using Excel Solver.

The following are two real-life problems we all have faced at one point of time.

Mathematical Problem:

4x+ y– 2z= 0
2x– 3y+ 3z= 9
–6x– 2y+ z= 0; Find out the values of x, y, and z.

As a student, you might have come across mathematical problems like the one above.

Suppose you run a company that produces three products: Product A, Product B, and Product C. Your company’s profit profile will be similar to the table shown below:

 Product Units/Day Profit/Unit Profit/Day Product A 25 \$13 \$325 Product B 25 \$18 \$450 Product C 25 \$22 \$550 Total 75 \$1325

From the table above, it is clear that, in order to maximize the profit, you should produce only Product C as it generates the highest per-unit profit. However, let’s add some more conditions for producing those products.

1. The production capacity of your company is 500 units per day.
2. Your company has to produce 100 units of Product A as your company has that amount of order.
3. Your company has to produce 80 units of Product B.
4. And the sales of Product C is on the lower end, so your company is not interested to produce more than 50 units of Product C per day.

You might face a dilemma in determining the production levels of Product A and Product B when the production of Product C is limited to 50 units or less.

In such scenerios, you can use the Excel Solver add-in.
