Q:
# 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

A:

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]

Answer:

a system of linear inequations that represents the situation is:

[tex]3x + 2y \leq 60 x\ \textgreater \ y[/tex]

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]

Answer:

a system of linear inequations that represents the situation is:

[tex]3x + 2y \leq 60 x\ \textgreater \ y[/tex]
