Marks pet needs to eat at least 18 grams of fiber but less than 25 grams of protein each day. Mark gives his dog Food A and Food B throughout the day. Food A has 2 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein in each serving. Food B has 4 grams of fiber and 1 gram of protein for each serving.

a. Write a system of inequalities that determine the maximum and minimum amount of each food Mark can give his pet each day. Will the amount of Food A or B ever be negative? Please account for this in your system of inequalities.

b. Give three solutions that would solve Marks pet needs. Show that each solution works.

3A+1B < 25

A>0

B>0

(A,B) = (1,5) …2(1)+4(5)>18 and 3(1)+1(5) < 25

(A,B) = (2,5) …2(2)+4(5)>18 and 3(2)+1(5) < 25

(A,B) = (3,5) …2(3)+4(5)>18 and 3(3)+1(5) < 25
