linear programming inequality
Business and finance. Suppose you have two part-time jobs. One is at a video
store that pays \$9 per hour and the other is at a convenience store that pays \$8 per
hour. Between the two jobs, you want to earn at least \$240 per week. Write an
inequality that shows the various number of hours you can work at each job.

let v be the number of hours you work at the video store, then the amount of money you earn is 9v

let c be the number of hours you work at the convenient store, then the amount of money you earn is 8c

if you want to make at least 240, that is greater than or equal to 240

9v + 8c >= 240
