I propsed myself a problem but i'm having some trouble solving it. I've narrowed it down to this but i need some help on this final part:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have this 2 inequations that must be obeyed:

(17/15)x + y > 50000 (1)

(2/25)x + (3/10)y > 5000 (2)

and I want to find values for x and y that respect those 2 conditions and so that (x+y) is as low as possible.

I don't even know if there is a single value of x+y or multiple ones.

Is the solution the intersection between the equations (1) and (2)?

Plz, tell me how to do this.

PS: I'm in high school so try to keep it simple.
