In a certain town, the inches of rainfall, x, on a certain day is described by two statements: 1. If 3 times the rainfall is increased by 2, the rainfall is still less than 26 inches. 2. 5 plus twice the rainfall is greater than 11 inches. Part A: Create a compound inequality to represent the rainfall range. (3 points) Part B: Can the rainfall in this town be 4 inches? Justify your answer by solving the inequalities in Part A. Part C: The average rainfall in another town is 5 inches, but the actual rainfall is within 4 inches of the average. Write and solve an inequality to find the range
