A 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

ok so does the initial charge of 1.75 depend on how many miles he drives?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no
anonymous
  • anonymous
well 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
so that gets rid of the last two options
anonymous
  • anonymous
you would multiply x by .25?
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
so that leaves the first two optioins
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 1.75+.25x=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so what does that represent there, what you just wrote it represents the total cost right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes?!
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes it does
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if Eddie has only 15 dollars to spend then the total cost cannot be greater than 15 correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
otherwise he would not have enough money
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh so its an inequality not an equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct, so the total cost must be less than or equal to 15, so which inequality is it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
B?
anonymous
  • anonymous
what does the less than or equal to sign look like?
anonymous
  • anonymous
< ----
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct, so it must be what then?
anonymous
  • anonymous
cost < or = to 15
anonymous
  • anonymous
but x, or the numbers of miles he drives, cant be more than 53, the miles it takes to spend all of his money
anonymous
  • anonymous
so a
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct, and when you solve the inequality for x i assume you will get x <= 53
anonymous
  • anonymous
could you help with another one?
anonymous
  • anonymous
close this one and post another one and i or someone else will help you
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok!
