Ricky needs $45 to buy a jacket. He has saved $15 and plans to work as a babysitter to earn $5 per hour. Which inequality shows the minimum number of hours, n, that Ricky should work as a babysitter to earn enough to buy the jacket?
5n ≥ 45 + 15, so n ≥ 12
5n ≤ 45 + 15, so n ≤ 12
15 + 5n ≥ 45, so n ≥ 6
15 + 5n ≤ 45, so n ≤ 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0he wants 45 or greater, not 45 or less. If n can be less than 6, then you could do n=3. Obviously 15+15=30 will not get him the 45 dollar jacket
