Hi, Reiro, I'm not quite sure of the connection between x, y, and z, and a, b, c. If these are indeed separate, then the last equation has no influence on the solution of the first two equations. In that case, you may do Needs["Algebra`InequalitySolve`"] InequalitySolve[(3a+5b+9c > 6a+6b+8c) && (3a+5b+9c > a+5b+12c), {a,b,c}] which yields your answer. If, instead, the set {x,y,z} is the SAME as {a,b,c}, then put your last equality in in the same way, and you'll get a more restrictive set of solutions. Hope that helps!
