CANS PRICE = 5X , BEAR PRICE = 3Y

10>= 5X+3Y IS 10>= 4X+5Y

the question as posted...i think the answer should be E...i dont understand what enough here means...is the cost of the cans and bottles exactly \$10 or something less...therefore I would say E...

I would request posters here to please do some due diligence when posting questions...I have noticed somewhat of a draw down of the quality in the quant forum...please make sure questions are correctly copied, are valid etc...
