A customer wants to spend between $30 and$60 on the CDs. Write the system of inequalities that represents this situation and graph its solution region. Could anyone point me in the right direction with this? I really have no clue where to start. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

So, would they be:

10m+15n≥30
10m+15n≤60

?
