x = nr. hrs working for a farmer; y = nr. hrs. babysitting; x + y <= 25; 10x + 5y >= 150 a) Solve the system => one of the solution is  x =5; y = 20(babysitting) b) 10 + 12 =22 <= 25; 10*10 + 5*12 = 160 >=150.

you can work only as a farmer 15 hours per week  10x+5y>=150    =>    10 x >= 150- 5y   :5  =>  2x >=30-y => 30-2x <= y                                                                                           x+y<= 25 =>  y>=30-2x y<=25-x
