\[\large \color{blue}{$3.79x \le $15}\] We know that bag of chips cost $3.79 and Mr. Connor has a budget of $15. He wishes to purchase a certain number of bags that will be within this budget and not exceed it. Therefore, if we have \(\large \color{blue}{x}\) being the unknown number of chips, then we can assume that we need to find out the number of bags that will suffice within $15. That is why we have the inequality symbol of "less than or equal to" or \(\le\).
