  Latoya and Jeff were asked by their basketball coaches to help schedule the intramural tournament at their middle school.  The school has two gyms in which games can be played but only the main gym has bleachers and a concession stand.

The girls will play 9 games and the boys will play 11 games.  The games are 50 minutes long with a 10 minute break between games.  The main gym is available for 8 hours.  The other smaller gym will be used for the remaining games.

The coaches asked Latoya and Jeff to list as many scheduling options as possible for the large gym.  List as many options as you can for scheduling the main gym.
