Solution:

Objective function in mathematical expression in linear programming that maximizes or minimizes some quantity.
Explanation:

Maximize Z=2x+3y

constraints  x+y<3, x>0, y>0

Maximum Z=2*0+3*4=12 

The maximum value of Z is at point B(0,3).

Similarly in this problem, if we take the objective function

Minimize Z=2x+3y using the same constraint the minimum value of Z at corner point O(0,0).

Minimize Z=0
