Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A cab charges $1.75 for the first mile and $0.25 for each additional mile. Write and solve an inequality to determine how many miles Eddie can travel if he has $15 to spend. $1.75 + $0.25x ≤ $15; x ≤ 53 miles $1.75 + $0.25x ≥ $15; x ≥ 53 miles $0.25 + $1.75x ≤ $15; x ≤ 8 miles $0.25 + $1.75x ≥ $15; x ≥ 8 miles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so does the initial charge of 1.75 depend on how many miles he drives?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well after the first mile, no it doesnt, so that will not change after the first mile, so you would not multiply the 1.75 by the number of miles right? the number of miles is x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would multiply x by .25?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that leaves the first two optioins

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so what does that represent there, what you just wrote it represents the total cost right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if Eddie has only 15 dollars to spend then the total cost cannot be greater than 15 correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so its an inequality not an equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct, so the total cost must be less than or equal to 15, so which inequality is it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does the less than or equal to sign look like?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct, so it must be what then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but x, or the numbers of miles he drives, cant be more than 53, the miles it takes to spend all of his money

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct, and when you solve the inequality for x i assume you will get x <= 53
