Jason is buying food for a party. One package of chicken wings costs $6.50, and Hot Dogs costs $4.00 per pound. He must spend less that $80.00. He also knows from previous requests that he must buy at least 5 pounds of hot dogs, and at least 3 packages of chicken wings. Write and graph the system of inequalities that represents this scenario.

    You need to do this in Linear Algebra rather than Algebra? Or just posted in the wrong place?

    let x be the number of packages of chicken wings and y the number of pounds of hotdogs. since the price of chicken wings is 6.5 $ then the total price of chicken wings bought is x.6.5$. in a similar manner the total price of hotdogs bought is y.4 $. But the total price of all things bought should be less than 80 $ so: \[6.5x + 4y < 80\] \[x \ge 3\] at least 3 pakcages of chicken wings \[y \ge 5\] at least 5 pounds of hotdogs

    |dw:1370981326433:dw| the area ABC will be the result, it is the area common between the three inequalities

    I was just graphing the inequalities and it looked weird. After looking at your post, I realized I made a mistake with the two shorter ones. Thanks a lot!
