## IrvinMarrero 3 years ago To protect the crab population, lawmakers prevent crabbers from fishing crabs that are too small. State law requires that crabbers throw back any male crab that does not meet a minimum length of 5 inches. Male crabs that are a minimum of 5 inches in length can be hauled in. a. Let c represent the size of a crab that must be thrown back under the law. b. Explain how you know you chose the right inequality symbol for the inequality you wrote in part a. c. Use full sentences to explain what the graph of the inequality in part a looks like.

2. perl

a) c < 5

3. perl

a) 0 < c < 5 might be better

4. perl

if the crab is 5 inches or greater, you can haul it in (keep it). so then if it is less than 5 inches, you must return it to water

5. perl

that would be part b)

6. IrvinMarrero

part b would be Explain how you know you chose the right inequality symbol for the inequality you wrote in part a.

b) if the crab is 5 inches or greater ( c > = 5 ) , you can haul it in and keep it. So then if it is less than 5 inches (c < 5) , you must return it to water. and i assumed c > 0 , since we are talking about crabs , not ghosts
