**Reiny**, Monday, January 30, 2012 at 10:25amThey had asked for an inequality.

Since he needs at least $693 you should have had

7x + 9y ≥ 693

to graph this, I would use the intercepts, (693 divides nicely by both 7 and 9)

for x-intercept, let y = 0

7x = 693 , x = 99

for y-interecept , let x = 0

9y = 693, y = 77

so after scaling your graph, plot

(0,77) and (99,0)

draw a solid line (the points on the line are included)

and shade in the region above the line.
