A garment company makes two types of woolen sweaters and can produce a max of 700 sweaters per week. Each sweater of the first type requires 2 pounds of green wool and 4 pounds of pink wool to produce a single sweater. The second type of sweater requires 4 pounds of green wool and 3 pounds of pink wool. The profit earned the first type of sweater is $5 and on the second type $7 . The company has 50 ounds of green wool and 80 pound of pink wool.

Write a system of inequalities to represent the number of sweaters of the first type and the number of sweaters of the second type that can be produced.

  • MATH -

    let the number of sweaters of the first type be x
    let the number of sweaters of the second type by y

    x+y ≤ 700 ---- total sweaters
    2x + 4y ≤ 50 --- green wook
    4x + 3y ≤ 80 --- pink wool

    Profit = 5x + 7y
