Thief can carry a maximum weight of W pounds in a knapsack. In this version of a problem the items can be broken into smaller piece, so the thief may decide to carry only a fraction xi of object i, where 0 ≤ xi ≤ 1. Item i contributes xiwi to the total weight in the knapsack, andxivi to the value of the load. In Symbol, the fraction knapsack problem can be stated as follows. maximize nSi=1 xivi subject to constraint nSi=1 xiwi ≤ W It is clear that an optimal solution must fill the knapsack exactly, for otherwise we could add a fraction of one of the remaining objects and increase the value of the load.
