The networking organization you joined is throwing a party. You are in charge of buying the chips, which cost $2.50 per bag and salsa, which costs $4 per jar. The chips & salsa budget you are given totals $60. The inequality 2.5x + 4y less than or equal to 60 represents the possible combinations of chips (x) and salsa (y) you can buy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Can you please give the question a go? It's not too different to the last question you did and uses some similar techniques.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok so we have the equation \[2.5x + 4y \le 60\] where x is chips and y is salsa. I'd say this question is easier than the last one you did because you just have to substitute numbers in. Try 10 bags of chips and 2 jars of salsa. That means x = 10 and y = 2, right? So we have 2.5(10) + 4(2) = 33. 33 is indeed less than 60, so it works. But we're looking for which one doesn't work. So try the same approach with the other chip/salsa combos.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To check your answer visually, you can look at the image. Look for where x = 18 and y = 6. See how it's only just outside the region? No problem :)
