    they want u to find n's for which x and y are positive so u need to solve this inequalities \[19n-244>0\]\[183-14n>0\]

    So the answer should just be where \[n >\frac{ 244 }{ 19 }\] or \[n <\frac{ 183 }{ 14 }\] Right?

    So the answer lies within the interval \[\frac{ 244 }{ 19}< n < \frac{ 183 }{14}\] ?
