    Please help with the following problem.

    In a linear programming problem, the binding constraints for the optimal solution are:
    6X + 10Y >= (greater than or equal to) 30
    3X + 15Y >= (greater than or equal to) 30
    Fill in the blanks: As long as the slope of the objective function stays between _____ and _____, the current optimal solution (whatever it is) will remain optimal. Show your work for full credit.
