Okay, we're having an issue with this problem, and even our teacher is confused on how the logic is on 1 of the equations. So basically, the part in bold is the linear equation we're having trouble setting up. Quote:
What do you guys think?  EDIT: Well we plugged in 2y <= 3x and got the correct answer. Anyone mind explaining the logic of the word problem and that linear equation?

x = aides, y = counselors. 30 ? x + y ? 45 x ? 10 3x ? 2y
