With the help of these values consider other occupied cells one by one and determine the appropriate values of taking in each case ui + vj = cij. Thus if ui is the row value of the row and v is the column value of the column and cij is the unit cost of the cell in the row and column then the row and column values are obtained using the followings equation.
