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

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"

Therefore, your system should be x >= 30 y >= 20 3x+5y <= 340

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
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
To graph y >= 20, you * graph the horizontal line y = 20 * make it a solid line * shade above the solid line

to graph 3x+5y <= 340, you * graph the line 3x+5y = 340 * make it a solid line * shade below the line

how would I do 3x+5y <= 340?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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)

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
thx, now you just need one more point to graph 3x+5y = 340

hold on, it didn't post part of the directions..

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.

same problem or different one entirely?

I think.. It was just the directions continued

Let P = combined profit of products #1 and #2 So "If Product #1 earns a profit of $10 per unit and Product #2 earns a profit of $15 per unit", then P = 10x + 15y

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
The ideal situation is that there is an ordered pair (x,y) that is within the shaded region and makes P as large as possible
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
It turns out that this ordered pair is a vertex of the shaded region ie, it is formed by the intersection of two of the lines

now here I'm going to add on the graphs of x = 30, y = 20, and dw:1358723212768:dw
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the shaded region is here dw:1358723376880:dw and it includes the surrounding (triangular) boundary

that1chickBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
x would be (30,0) and y would be (0,20) right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what do you mean

that1chickBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
for x>=30 I would graph (0,30) ?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes you would use any points with an x coordinate of 30

were you able to find the points of intersection?

I have the points so far

this is what I got (see attached)

So I connect them and shade the middle right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
those points you got look like they need more points to be able to draw the 3 lines
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
take a look at what I posted and see if that makes sense or not
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
odd, it should work with geogebra your file worked

ok great, the upper horizontal line should be diagonal like in the pic i posted
 one year ago

that1chickBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so how do I fix that?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
make it go through the points (0,68) and (30,50)
 one year ago

Ive never used GeoGebra before
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or you can simply type in 3x+5y = 340 into the input bar and it will graph the line 3x+5y = 340 for you

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok you got all 3 lines nailed down correctly

the shaded region will be the triangle in the middle and it will include the boundary

Ok awesome! ..how do I shade it?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
like shown in the attachment
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you can use geogebra to do the shading, or you can use paint like I just did (I used the paint bucket) to fill in the correct region
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
sure thing, you can then easily use geogebra to find the points of intersection then you need to see which points give you the max profit
 one year ago

that1chickBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So the shaded region would be P = 10x + 15y, right?
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no that has nothing to do with the shaded region once you find the vertices, you use P = 10x + 15y to test each one
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no it won't, the shaded region is done
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
what are the points of intersection
 one year ago

that1chickBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Oh! I plug in the x and y coordinates into P = 10x + 15y
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yep, you find the x,y coordinates of these three intersections
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then you plug them into P = 10x + 15y
 one year ago

jim_thompson5910Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the ordered pair that gives you the largest value of P is the winner
