Judah's family wants to ride the bumper boats at a water park. There are 4 children(c) and 2 adults (a) in Judah's family. The boats are safe if 40c + 12a ​ $$\leq$$  500.Can judah's family ride the bumper boats safely?

Can I ask what values 40, 12, and 500 stand for?

40(4)+ 12(2)  <= 500?

160 + 24 = 184     Yes it  is safe to ride

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 $$\boxed{yes}$$.
