least 60 feet. The cost of the fence along the length of the lot is $1.50 per foot, and the

cost of the fence along the width is $2 per foot. The total cost cannot exceed $360.

a. Use two variables to write a system of inequalities that models the problem.

b. What is the maximum width of the lot if the length is 60 feet.

So, this is where I'm at..

x = length

y = width

1.5(2x) + 2(2y) ≤ 360

3x + 4y ≤ 360

{y ≤ -5/2x + 90

{x ≥ 60, y ≥ 0

x = 90, y...I went blank
