Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, at least means greater than or equal to. That immediately eliminates B and D, as those are less than or equal to.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, you know he earned 5 points in the first round. He scored more points in the next 3 rounds. So you know he earned 5 points. So it will be 5+__ Then you don't know how many points he earned in the next rounds, so you fill it with p, and then you will end up multiplying that by 3, so you know it will be 3p. 5 + 3p ≥ 30 will be your final answer. This type of question is all in the reading, there is no math you actually have to do.
