  4. A kennel raises Doberman pinschers and German shepherds. The kennel can raise no more than 40 dogs and wishes to have no more than 24 Doberman pinschers. The cost of raising a Doberman pinscher is $50, the cost of raising a German shepherd is $30, and the kennel can invest no more than $1500 for this purpose. Find a system of inequalities which describes the number of Doberman pinschers and German shepherds that can be raised by the kennel.

    Answer: Let x be the number of Doberman pinschers, and y be the number of German shepherds. The system of inequalities is:


  5. Find all angles tex2html_wrap_inline401 between tex2html_wrap_inline403 and tex2html_wrap_inline405 that satisfy tex2html_wrap_inline407 . Write you answers in the degree-minute-second format.

    Answer: The angles are tex2html_wrap_inline409 , and tex2html_wrap_inline411 .
