Edwin has a gift card worth $25 to a digital music service. The table shows the items that he has picked out to download so far.
R&B Hits Album9.99
Edwin wants to download another album without exceeding the value of the gift card. Set up and solve an inequality to represent how much he can spend, m, on the album. Which of the following represents the solution to this inequality?
The sum of the prices of the albums must be less than or equal to $25
m + 9.99 + 1.29 + 0.79 ≤ 25
Simplify the left side of the inequality
m + 12.07 ≤ 25
Subtract 12.07 from both sides of the inequality
m ≤ 25 - 12.07
m ≤ 12.93
