**Question 1:**

A hospital dietitian wishes to prepare a corn-bean vegetable dish which will provide at least 40 grams of carbs, and cost no more than \$0.36 per serving.

28 grams of corn provide 8 grams of carbs and cost \$.04.

30 grams of beans provide 5 grams of carbs and cost \$.03. For taste there must be at least 56 grams of beans. There must be at least as much corn as beans.

I need to find 5 inequalities and graph them, I know how to graph and solve the inequalities I'm just having a really hard time finding the inequalities.

What I have so far: corn > or equal to 56, amount of Corn > or equal to amount of Beans.

**Question 2:**

Montenia takes a commuter train to her restaurant every afternoon, traveling 25 miles. Later that evening she returns home on the same train, except it is able to average 5mph faster. Montenia spend a total of 1 hour and 50 minutes total on the trains commuting. what is the speed of the train on the return trip.

I know that the 25 is the constant term but I'm having issues with the other pieces of the problem.

What I would really like is for someone to walk be through it so I can understand it myself, so in the future I won't need someone to hold my hand.
