An integer programming (maximization) problem was first solved as a linear programming problem, and the objective function value (profit) was \$253.67. The two decision variables (X, Y) in the problem had values of X = 12.45 and Y = 32.75. If there is a single optimal solution, which of the following must be true for the optimal integer solution to this problem?
a. X = 12 Y = 32
b. X = 12 Y = 33
c. the objective function value must be less than \$253.67
d. the objective function value will be greater than \$253.67
