Publix sells chicken for $2.49/Ib and pork for $3.19/Ib. Mary buys c pounds of chicken and p pounds of pork. If Mary only has $40 to spend, how could you represent the constraints in either an equation, inequality, system of equation, or system of inequalities. Justify your solution.
I'm doing the Usatestprep Vocabulary right now.
A system of equations is a set of equations with the same variables. A system of inequalities is almost exactly the same, except you're working with inequalities instead of equations! To solve such a system, you need to find the variable values that will make each inequality true at the same time.
The solutions of an equation are the values that satisfy it and fulfill the conditions set with it. They can be single numbers, equations, sets or others.
