Q:
# Dolora spends at least 4 hours per week gardening. She spends more time on routine maintenance such as weeding, pruning, and watering than on harvesting vegetables or flowers. She spends at least 1 hour per week harvesting. Which system of inequalities represents Dolora’s weekly gardening time if

Accepted Solution

A:

We are told that Dolora spends at least 1 hour per week
harvesting
If y represents the number of weekly hours spent on harvesting
Then, y ≥ 1
We are also told that Dolora spends more time on routine garden than
on harvesting.
If x represents the number of weekly hours spent on routine
garden maintenance,
Then x > y
We are also told that Dolora spends at least 4 hours per week
gardening (maintenance and harvesting).
Then, x + y ≥ 4
Therefore, Dolora’s weekly gardening time can be represented by
this system of inequalities:
{x + y ≥ 4
{x > y
{y≥1
