    X represents the number of "packs of papers" he can purchase. That number must be less then 20.

    Think about it. The # of packs is x. They each cost 3.75. It has to be under 20 dollars. Which one says that in math terms?

    No. But close. That says that the number of packs * price is greater than or equal to 20.

    Yes it's b. Think about what the equation is saying, and you should easily have this down :).
