Solution:

Let x = first account

Let y = second account

The words "up to" tells me to use less than or equal to when adding the two accounts.

The words "at least" tells me to use greater than or equal to as a second inequality in the system.

One of the inequalities is x + y < = 20,000.

I think the following two inequalities are also part of the systems of inequalities I must find:

x >= 5,000

y >= 5,000

I somehow think there is one more inequality missing. Stuck here...
