    X and y represent the two students.

    Teacher wants to spend at least $5 in each of x and y. That means x or y could be either equal to 5 or higher than 5.

    x ≥ 5

    y ≥ 5

    Teacher only spends under $30. That means the sum of x and y couldn't be equal to higher than 30. It should be lower than 30.

    x + y < 30

    The correct answer is option D
