Ugh, algebra! Help please, if you can. :(
You are serving bratwurst and hamburgers at a picnic. You want at least 3 brats or hamburgers for each of your 50 guests. Brats cost $1.25 each, and hamburgers cost $0.95 each.Your budget is $200.
Write a system of inequalities that represents this solution.
Thank you! TT_TT

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes and the second equation should depend on the first. so B and H will be the number of brats and burgs
