    They 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.
