• how do you know that 750 is the number of comments and not the number of videos?!
• It says
"In the following inequality, C represents the number of cat videos..."
It's telling you that the variable C represents how many cat videos there are. The coefficient 750 represents how many comments each cat video has.

If there are C number of cat videos and there are 750 comments on each cat video, then the total number of comments from all the cat videos is going to be 750 comments per cat video times the number of cat videos (C). So it's going to be 750C.
• why not a cat and dog video(a cat and a dog in the same video)?
• shouldn't it be fighting vids
• At the beginning of the question, I thought he gets the same number of comments on both cat and dog questions. So i thought, why don't i just just sub. c for d but then i remembered that this is a two variable question
