1. Suppose she works c hours at the cafe, and m hours at the market.

To earn at least \$800, we need
10c + 8m >= 800

60 hours at the market means \$480
at most 90 hours per month means at most 30 hours at the cafe, for \$300

If you have trouble with the graphs, google graphing inequalities for examples. Or, heck, study your text...
