A shipping container will be used to transport several 100-kilogram crates across the country by rail. The greatest weight that can be loaded into the container is 24000 kilograms. Other shipments weighing 12800 kilograms have already been loaded into the container. Write and solve an inequality which can be used to determine x, the number of 100-kilogram crates that can be loaded into the shipping container.

12800  + 100x ≤ 24000

 

100x ≤  24000 - 12800

 

100x ≤ 11200

 

x ≤  11200 / 100

 

x ≤  112    ( 100 kg crates)
