Example Question #1 : Creating Equations✭

Jimmy has a collection of baseball cards. He wants to make at least $50.00 by selling some of them for $3.00 per card. Which inequality best represents this goal?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To set up the inequality that represents Jimmy's situation, first identify what is given in the word problem and then translate it into mathematical terms.

"Jimmy has a collection of baseball cards. He wants to make at least $50.00 by selling some of them for $3.00 per card."

Let,

Since Jimmy wants to make "at least" $50.00, that means the inequality will have a greater-than or equal-to sign.

From here, set up the general inequality and substitute the known values.

Example Question #2 : Creating Equations✭

Jimmy has a collection of baseball cards. He wants to make at least $20.00 by selling some of them for $4.00 per card. Which inequality best represents this goal?
