# linear inequalities question a level watch

1. HI i am wondering if anyone could explain to me how to do the following linear inequality questions:
1/2x+3/4y (is less than or equal to) 8
and
5y-(4+y)(is greater than)0

and where can i practice more like so...
thanks

Uh what is the question actually asking you to do? Cos all I can think of doing is simplifying it.

Well I suppose you would solve the bottom equation to find y is greater than something. Then you'd put the minimum value of y into the top equation to find a maximum value of X.

Well in that case other than simplifying the second equation I really don't see what else you can do
