    Answer:

    The cargo and luggage weights have to be 1100 pounds or less.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If six passengers weigh an average of 150 pounds each, all six passengers weigh 150 x 6 = 900 pounds.

    Therefore, the total passenger’s weight is 900 pounds.

    Now, let’s call the luggage and cargo weight x.

    We know that the luggage and cargo weight plus the passengers weight has to be 2000 pounds or less.

    If we write this as an inequality we get:

    x + 900 ≤ 2000

    x ≤ 2000 – 900

    x ≤ 1100.

    Therefore, the luggage and cargo weights have to weight 1100 pounds or less.
