    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!
    Thanks in advance!

    y = hours worked at second job.
    x = hours worked at first job.

    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
