You are planning to spend no less than $6,000 and no more than $10,000 on your landscaping project.
Suppose you want to cover the backyard with decorative rock and plant some trees as the first phase of the project. You need 30 tons of rock to cover the area. If each ton cost $60 and each tree is $84, with a budget for rock and trees of $2,500 Would 5 trees be a solution to the inequality in part b? Justify your answer.

You have not provided the "part b inequality"
The decorative roack costs $1800, leaving $700 for trees. It seems to me that you have enough to plant up to 8 trees, but not 9 or moree
