Mrs. Paulson bought chicken wire to enclose a rectangular garden. She is restricted to a width of no more than 30 feet. She would like to use at most 180 feet of chicken wire. This situation can be represented by a system of inequalities, where x = the width of the chicken wire and y = the length of the chicken wire. Identify two possible combinations for the width and length of the chicken wire in order to make her a rectangular garden. Create a system of linear inequalities.

    Let l = length and w = width of the rectangular garden

    => w < 30

    and 2 (l + w) ≤ 180

    => l + w ≤ 90

    => 0 < w < 30 and 60 ≤ l < 90.
