An elevator at a department store must carry fewer than 17 people at a time. An elevator operator is present in the elevator at all times. If x customers can travel in the elevator with the elevator operator, which inequality represents this situation? x + 1 < 17 x > 18 x + 1 < 16 x < 17 x + 1 > 18

    I believe that the answer would be x + 1 < 17 because an elevator operator takes up the space of one person, therefore, x+ 1. And because there can be fewer than 17 people on the elevator at once, it would be x + 1 < 17. *I think*
