I'm not asking for you to do my work for me, just help me create a system of inequalities please! • The name of your company • The type of business (i.e., clothing, electronics, furniture, etc.) • Two products your company will make • Assign variables to the two products; please use x and y • A system of inequalities based on the following information o Produce at least 30 of product #1. o Produce at least 20 of product #2. o Product #1 costs $3 per unit to make. o Product #2 $5 per unit to make. o The total production cost cannot exceed $340. • Graph the system of inequalities o

    What I have so far: Beyond the Galaxy We create trippy clothes. Such as (product #1:) shirts (x) and (product #2:) skirts (y). 30x+20y<= $3x+$5y<=$340

    x is the number of items of product 1 so when you make the requirement that you must "Produce at least 30 of product #1", this means x >= 30 So you can produce x = 30, x = 31, x = 32, ... items of product 1 (but nothing less than 30)

    So what do you get when you translate "Produce at least 20 of product #2"

    to graph x >= 30, follow these steps Step 1) graph the vertical line x = 30 Step 2) make it a solid line Step 3) shade to the right of this solid line

    plug in x = 0 to get 3x+5y = 340 3*0+5y = 340 5y = 340 y = 340/5 y = 68 So one point on the line 3x+5y=340 is (0,68)

    If Product #1 earns a profit of $10 per unit and Product #2 earns a profit of $15 per unit, find the combination of Product #1 and Product #2 that will maximize profit. A commercial that could be used to advertise your two products to the general public. You may include a slogan or jingle.
