 Question 175770: At most 500 feet of fencing is available for a steer pasture(assuming it's a rectangle). Ther is only space for the pasture to be 100 feet wide. a. Write a system of two linear inequalities that describe this situation. y < or = 100, with y being the width 2y + 2x < or equal to 500, which became y < or equal to -x + 250 b. Graph the system to show all possible solutions. Drew a horizontal line on graph at y-axis 100, and shaded below the line. Wasn't sure what to do with 2nd equation in graphing, particularly the slope. Feeling really stupid about this. :) :( Thanks for any help possible! Click here to see answer by josmiceli(9680)
