**7.6 Systems of Linear Inequalities Word Problems**

Goal: Use a system of linear inequalities to model a real-life situation.

2
Word Problems Most of these problems will not give you a slope and y-intercept. You will not be writing inequalities in Slope- Intercept Form. You will be writing equations in Standard Form.

3
**Standard Form Word Problems**

Figure out what x and y represent. Write an inequality for each topic in the problem.

Word Problem #1 You can work a total of no more then 41 hours each week at your two jobs. Housecleaning pays $5 per hour and your sales job pays $8 per hour. You need to earn at least $254 each week to pay your bills. Write a system of inequalities that shows the various numbers of hours you can work at each job. x = housecleaning y = sales job Hours: x + y ≤ 41 Money: 5x + 8y ≥ 254

5
Word Problem #2 Fuel x costs $2 per gallon and fuel y costs $3 per gallon. You have at most $18 to spend on fuel. Write and graph a system of linear inequalities to represent this situation. x = fuel x y = fuel y Price: 2x + 3y ≤ 18 Gallons of x: x ≥0 Gallons of y: y ≥ 0

6
Word Problem #3 A salad contains ham and chicken. There are at most 6 pounds of ham and chicken in the salad. Write and graph a system of inequalities to represent this situation. x = ham y = chicken Total Pounds: x + y ≤ 6 Pounds of ham: x ≥ 0 Pounds of chicken: y ≥ 0

7
Word Problem #4 Mary babysits for $4 per hour. She also works as a tutor for $7 per hour. She is only allowed to work 13 hours per week. She wants to make at least $65. Write and graph a system of inequalities to represent this situation. x = babysitting y = tutoring Hours: x + y ≤ 13 Money: 4x + 7y ≥ 65
