Okay. I mean I guess I won't need them if we are just plugging the numbers in.

We have the equation \(40c + 12a \leq 500\).

Plugging in \(4\) for c and \(2\) for a,

we get:

\(40(4) + 12(2) \leq 500\)

\(= 160 + 24 \leq 500\)

\(= 184 \leq 500\).

Since \(184\) is less than \(500\), the boats are safe.

Therefore, Judah's family can ride the bumper boats safely.

So the answer is \(\boxed{yes}\).
