Best Answer

Slack variables are added to inequality constraints in linear programming to convert them into equality constraints and to help facilitate the simplex method, a common algorithm used to solve linear programming problems. Slack variables represent the surplus or "slack" between the left-hand side and the right-hand side of an inequality constraint.
