HEEEEELP MEH PLZ
The nonprofit organization you volunteer for is throwing a fundraiser cookout. You are in charge of buying the hamburgers, which cost $3.00 per pound and hotdogs, which cost $2.00 per pound. The meat budget you are given totals $600. The inequality 3x + 2y less than or greater to 600 represents the possible combinations of pounds of hamburgers (x) and hotdogs (y) you can buy. Which of the following represents a solution to the inequality?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example, if we use data from the first option, we get: \[3 \times 200 + 2 \times 140 = ...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which is greater than 600, so the first option is not the right option

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, using data from your second option, we get: \[3 \times 150 + 2 \times 60 = ...?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct! Being 570 less than 600, what can you conclude?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think that your problem asks for all pairs (x,y) such that the subsequent condition 3x+2y < 600 is checked

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1being 570 less than 600, then we can conclude that the pair (x=150, y=60) checks our condition above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example if we use data from the third option we get: 3*100+ 2*240= 780 which is greater than600, so the third pair, doesn't check our condition

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, if we use data from the fourth option, we get: 3*240 + 2*40 = 720+80= 800> 600 so, also the pair (x=240, y=40) doesn't check our condition

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, what is the pair which checks our condition?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're trying to satisfy \(3x+2y \le600\), where x is the pounds of hamburgers and y is the pounds of hot dogs. Basically, go through each of the answer choices and check to see which satisfy the equation. Does that make sense?
