Mark is filling up crates with watermelons for the food drive. He has large watermelons that weigh 10 pounds each and smaller watermelons weigh up to 5 pounds. The truck at most can hold no more than 500 pounds.


Let x represent the larger watermelons and y represent the number of medium watermelons. What inequality represents this situation? 




There are 10 inches of sawdust from the lumber yard in the pit. The sawdust is building 2 inches every minute.  


Write a linear equations that represents the amount of sawdust, in inches, after x minutes.
