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
\[$1.75x \le $25\]
