Abstract : In a previous article we have defined and studied sets of two optimization problems that we call associated problems: an optimization problem with one inequality constraint being given, its associated problem is obtained by exchanging the constraint function and the objective function. The main purpose of this paper is to present some connections between the solutions of a problem and those of its associated one, and more particularly to make methods for solving any optimization problem having a suitable form when the solutions of its associated problem are known.
