An example First, let’s define our variables: X = number of cases of Choconuts to produce Y = number of cases of Carmonuts to produceSuppose a candy
An example The Choconuts require 3 pounds of chocolate and the Carmonuts require 2 pounds of chocolate and we only have 300 pounds of chocolate . So, the inequality that represents 3 X + 2 Y <= 300 The Choconuts require 1.5 pounds of peanuts and the Carmonuts require 3 pounds of peanuts and we only have 250 pounds of peanuts . So, the inequality that represents 1.5 X + 3 Y <= 250
