Avoiding degeneracy in an LP formulation

I assume that "less than or equal to" $\left( \leq \right)$ and "greater than or equal to" $\left( \geq \right)$ constraints avoid degeneracy because each of those has at least one ...

Upper bound on number of pivots to escape a degenerate point

Is it always possible to escape a degenerate point by a single pivot, or is it possible that several pivots are required? In other words is it possible to get away from a degenerate point by a single ...

Dual solution when solving a primal degenerate LP with the interior point algorithm

Say, we're working with an LP that is primal degenerate (optimal solution is at a vertex but with multiple bases) and not dual degenerate (optimal solution is not at a face). If we were to solve it ...
