  1. a) Let x = number of presale tickets
    y = number of day of show tickets

    x + y =< 800
    6x + 9y >= 5000

    b) 6x + 9y >=5000
    6(440) + 9y >=5000

    y >= 262.2
    263 tickets

    440 advance purchase tickets added to 263 day of show tickets is 703 tickets, which is below the 800 ticket maximum. So yes, it is possible.
