    confusing systems of inequalities

    Your class has rented buses for a field trip. Each bus seats 44 passengers. The rental company's policy states that you must have at least 3 adults on each bus. Let x=number of students on each bus and y=number of adults. Write a system of inequalities to show the number of students and adults that could be on each bus.

    This is explicitly stated.

    y >= 3

    How about the students.
