Which of the following does not represent a solution to the inequality?
10 bags of chips and 2 jars of salsa

a. 2.5(10) + 2(4) = 25 + 4= $29 > since the budget is $60, $29 is obviously less, so this is a solution.
b. 20(2.5) + 2(4) = 50 + 8= $58 > budget is 60, so this is also a solution
c. 14(2.5) + 5(4) = 35 + 20= $55 > less than 60, it is a solution.
d. 18(2.5) + 6(4) = 45 + 24 = $69 > more than 60, so this is not a solution
Because the budget is $60, D is not a solution since it exceeds the budget.
