LaToya decides to join a gym for a minimum of one month to train for a triathlon. The gym charges a beginner's fee of $100 and a monthly fee of $38. If x represents the number of months that LaToya is a member of the gym, the equation below can be used to determine C, her total membership fee for that duration of time: 100 + 38x = C LaToya has allocated a maximum of $404 to spend on her gym membership. Which number line shows the possible number of months that LaToya can be a member of the gym?

    here we have to solve this inequality: \[100 + 38x \leqslant 404\] with the additive condition \(x \geqslant 0\)

    here is the inequality: \[100 + 38x \leqslant 404\] do you see it now?

    first step: I subtract 100 from both sides: \[\begin{gathered} 100 + 38x - 100 \leqslant 404 - 100 \hfill \\ 38x \leqslant 304 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

    now, I divide both sides by 38, what do you get?

    I think option A, since if I pay 100$ I am already a member of the gym
