Thank you so much! I really appreciate the help. Would you mind helping me find the solution as well. :))


David Z.

so if you graph this system, the equation 2x+y<=15 will have a y intercept of 15 and an x intercept of 7.5. If you graph the equation x+y<=10, the y intercept is 10 and the x intercept is 10. The point where both x and y are equal for both equations is x=5, y =5 (5,5). But since it's an inequality there is some shading involved that shows all the allowable solution combinations.
