I own a large truck, and my neighbor owns four small trucks that are all identical. My truck can carry a load of at least $500$ pounds more than each of her trucks, but no more than $\frac{1}{4}$ of the total load her four trucks combined can carry.  Based on these facts, what is the greatest load I can be sure that my large truck can carry, in pounds?

if I understand correctly

neighbors truck = n

your truck = m

m >= n+500

m<= 1/4(4n)

so, if we simplify the second one

m<=n

this isn't possible because the first equation contridicts this statement, so it's no solution?
