I'LL fan and medal JUST SOMEONE PLZZZ HELP
A company dyes two sizes of rugs. A small rug requires 8 hours for dyeing and a mediumsize rug requires 12 hours for dyeing. The dyers have to make at least 22 rugs, and they must do it in less than 240 hours. Let x equal small rugs and y equal medium rugs. Which of the following inequalities can be paired with x + y ≥ 22 to create a system that represents this situation?
8x + 12y > 240
12x + 8y > 240
8x + 12y < 240
12x + 8y < 240

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It's very simple. It takes 8 hours for Small rugs which is represented by x, it takes 12 hours for medium rugs which is represented by y. You can't take more than 240 hours, So that is your maximum. So you end up with 8x+12y<240 Does that help you understand?
