A feasible region is an area defined by a set of coordinates that satisfy a system of inequalities. The region satisfies all restrictions imposed by a linear programming scenario. The concept is an optimization technique. For example, a planner can use linear programming to determine the best value obtainable under conditions dictated by several linear equations that relate to a real-life problem.
