 pivot
 construct a new set of equations given a pivot Calling Sequence pivot(C, x, eqn) Parameters

 C - set or list of equations x - variable name eqn - equation or list of equations Description

 • The call pivot(C, x, eqn) constructs a new set of equations in a form compatible with the forms used in simplex[setup], by solving the specified equation eqn for x, then substituting the result into C. This is equivalent to the standard simplex pivot on an array of coefficients.
 • To re-express the objective function f in terms of this new description, one can substitute the result of pivot into f.
 • If eqn is a list of equations, then ${\mathrm{eqn}}_{1}$ is used.  This is to facilitate easy user interaction with the function simplex[pivoteqn] used to choose an equation to use for the next pivot.
 • The command with(simplex,pivot) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command. Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{simplex}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{pivot}\left(\left\{\mathrm{_SL1}=5-4x-3y,\mathrm{_SL2}=4-3x-4y\right\},x,\left[\mathrm{_SL1}=5-4x-3y\right]\right)$
 $\left\{{\mathrm{_SL2}}{=}\frac{{1}}{{4}}{-}\frac{{7}{}{y}}{{4}}{+}\frac{{3}{}{\mathrm{_SL1}}}{{4}}{,}{x}{=}\frac{{5}}{{4}}{-}\frac{{3}{}{y}}{{4}}{-}\frac{{\mathrm{_SL1}}}{{4}}\right\}$ (1)
