b. If Xi1= ai cross out the i row of the transportation table  and reconsider the first column with the  remaining  demand.

c. If Xi1= bj = a i cross out the i row and make  the second allocation Xk1= 0  in the cell ( k, 1) with Ck1 being the new minimum  cost in  the first  column. Cross  out the  column and move towards  right to the  second column.
