Tutorial Step 6
The ranges portion of the GeneHunter dialog box allows you to limit the range of variables within which GeneHunter will search for a solution. For example, the adjustable cells in the Camping Trip example represent the number of servings per day for each food group. The range has been set from 0 to 10 servings per day for each food group. It would be unrealistic for GeneHunter to search for solutions that include 100 servings per day of a particular food group. You could also set individual ranges for each food group by using the Add, Change, and Delete buttons. Refer to Chapter 3 for details on how to use these buttons.
Note: When you are setting ranges (hard constraints) to define the minimum and maximum values for the adjustable cells, you must enter a value (number) or cell reference in the edit box on the right. The following is an example of a hard constraint:
Cell B7 <= 10
