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

    Is it B+ H> or equal to 150?

    or, maybe this: 1.25B+0.95H>=(50)(3)

    B+H>=150.. like you said, but then you need another equation

    1.25B+0.95H<=200

    No problem. Thank you for helping me. I THINK, is it...1.25B+.95H=200?

    yes and the second equation should depend on the first. so B and H will be the number of brats and burgs

    so i would include the <= just so you are implying that since 200 is a budget, it doesn't mean you have to use ever penny of it
