# Math Help - Inequality problem (=optimizations)

1. ## Inequality problem (=optimizations)

I don't understand why the inequality is x</=y instead of what I thought which was x>/=y.

If anybody could tell me, I'd appreciate it a lot!
It says number of hours worked at second job must be at least as much as worked at first job. Hence number of hours at 2nd job $\geq$ number of hours worked at first job => $y \geq x$
