  • ALGEBRA - ,

    Let x=length, y=width.
    "A farmer has 165 feet of fencing material in which to enclose a rectangle area." means
    2(x+y)≤165 ....(1)

    "He wants the length x to be greater than 50 feet" means
    x>50 ......(2)

    "and width y to be no more than 20 feet." means
    y&le=20....(3)

    The system is the collection of inequalities (1) to (3).
