A box of crayons costs $1.75, including tax. Mr. Valentino wants to purchase boxes of crayons for his class and has a $25 budget. Write an inequality to solve for the number of boxes of crayons Mr. Valentino can purchase with his budget. $1.75x ≤ $25 $1.75x ≥ $25 $25x ≤ $1.75 $25x ≥ $1.75

    To solve this, X will = the number of crayon boxes Mr. Valentino buys. If each crayon box costs $1.75, we can multiply the price ($1.75) times the number of boxes (x), which gives us $1.75x as our term. He has to spend less than (or exactly) $25 or he will be over budget. So our inequality will be less than or equal to $25. Putting these parts together, the equation is \[$1.75x \le $25\]
