y = 2x

x + y ≤ 30

Substitute 2x for y in second equation and solve for x. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for y. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.

Sorry, the second equation should be as indicated below.

15x + 30y ≤ 30*60

Substitute 2x for y in second equation and solve for x. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for y. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
