To rent a certain meeting room, a college charges a reservation fee of $38 and an additional fee of $8.70 per hour. The math club wants to spend less than $90.20 on renting the meeting room. What are the possible amounts of time for which they could rent the meeting room? Use t for the number of hours the meeting room is rented, and solve your inequality for t.

I believe the inequality would be t => 6
38 + 8.7t <= 90.20
8.7t <= 90.20 - 38
8.7t <= 52.20
t <= 52.20/8.7
t < = 6
but how would it be <.
I thought => means less than or equal to.
Meaning they could have the room for up to six hours

< means less then
> means greater then
picture you inequality sign as an alligators mouth opening....and eating the bigger number.
Examples : 4 > 2......the alligators mouth is going after the bigger number...so 4 is greater then 2.
2 < 3....alligator is going after the 3 because it is bigger....therefore, 2 is less then 3.
and = just means equals
