The Amazon website plans to purchase ads in a local newspaper advertising their site. Their operating budget will allow them to spend at most $2200 on this advertising adventure. They plan to run at most 20 ads. An ad will cost $50 to appear in the weekday paper and $200 to appear in a weekend edition. Prepare a graph that will represent all of the possible combinations of ads under these conditions.

pick a variable for one of the ad types:

say "d" for week"day"

then do an expression for how much is left for the other type:

multiply each type by its cost

add to get the whole cost

set equal to the max they gave you

solve:

then back-solve for the other amount

to graph, set the whole-cost expression equal to y (and replace "d" with "x" if that helps you):
