Please help me! Think of a real-world situation that makes sense for the inequality y<-2x+20. Then, choose an ordered pair that is part of the solution set and explain the meaning of the ordered pair for your situation

    I know what it looks like, I mainly need a real world situation that applies to this inequality.

    Other examples on different inequalities were like someone could buy so many pounds of apples x and so many pounds of oranges y with 12 dollars.
