You can spend at most $60 on beads. A bag containing red beads costs $2 per bag. A bag containing blue beads costs $3 per bag. You need more bags of blue beads than bags of red beads. Write a system of linear equations that represents the situation.

Accepted Solution

For this case, the first thing we must do is define variables.
 We have then:
 x: number of blue beads
 y: number of red beads
 We now write the inequations system:
 [tex]3x + 2y \leq 60 x\ \textgreater \ y[/tex]
 a system of linear inequations that represents the situation is:
 [tex]3x + 2y \leq 60 x\ \textgreater \ y[/tex]
