I am currently working on Overleaf and trying to plot the system of equations:

7x + y <= 10000
10x + 2y > 13000

I do have the code for plotting a set of equations which I got from an answer to another question

% grid
\draw [densely dashed, gray!50]    (-6,-6) grid (6,6);  
% ticks
\foreach \i in {-5,...,-1,1,2,...,5}
\draw (\i,0.1) -- ++ (0,-0.2) node[below,font=\scriptsize] {$\i$};
\draw (0.1,\i) -- ++ (-0.2,0) node[left, font=\scriptsize] {$\i$};
% axis
\draw [->] ( 0,-6) -- (0,6) node [left ] {$y$};
\draw [->] (-6, 0) -- (6,0) node [below] {$x$};
% graph
\draw [draw=red,thick] (-2,-6) -- (2,6);
\fill[red] (-1,-3) circle (1.5mm) (1,3) circle (1.5mm);
\draw [draw=blue]   (-6,-5) -- (6,1);

However, I have tried editing the values to suit my system of equations. However, LaTeX crashes because it cannot print objects above 19 ft?

I don't understand why this should be an issue as the scale can always be adjusted.

I was looking for an answer on whether it is possible to use this method to graph my system of equations. If yes, what are the requisite changes that I need to make? And if not, is there any other way in which I can plot these equations?

    Can you post the solution which crashes please? – AboAmmar Feb 26 at 13:33

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – Alessandro Cuttin Feb 26 at 13:34

    All numbers that are in your calculations or can be the result during the calculating process must not exceed 16383.99999 at any point. That is because TeX is not quite good at handling big numbers. – Fractal is at topanswers.xyz Feb 26 at 13:35

    Hello there! This is Tom from the Overleaf Support Team. Please note that I removed the overleaf tag as this is not directly Overleaf-related. Note that if you face the 19ft (5.7m) limit, it means that your plot contains control point or parts that are this large. This is a hard limitation of TeX itself, not of Overleaf. – yo' Feb 26 at 14:12

    @SushrutaNandy it’s like you use 1/1000000000*1000000000. The result is only 1, but TeX has to compute up to 1000000000. – Fractal is at topanswers.xyz Feb 26 at 14:55
