Andrea has $18 to spend. She spent $6.50, including tax, to buy a notebook. She needs to save $5.75, but she wants to buy a snack.

#1**+1 **

18 - 6.5 - 1.15n ≥ 5.75

11.5 - 1.15n ≥ 5.75

Subtract 11.5 from both sides of the inequality.

-1.15n ≥ -5.75

Divide both sides by -1.15 and flip the inequality sign.

n ≤ 5

The number candy bar packages must be less than or equal to 5 The maximum number should be 5.

At least thats what I think
