Maya has \$15 to spend. She spent \$5.50, including tax, to buy a notebook. She needs to save \$7.75, but she wants to buy a snack. If cookies cost \$0.25 per package including tax, what inequality would show the maximum number of packages that Maya can buy? Solve your inequality by showing your work and steps.

Maya has \$15 to spend. She spent \$5.50, including tax, to buy a notebook

\$9.50 left

15-5.50=19/2=9.5

9.50-7.75=7/4=\$1.75

She can spen \$1 and 75¢ on the cookies

1.75/.25=7

She can buy up to 7 packs of cookies and still have \$7 and 75¢ left

She has  15  - 5.50  =  9.50  left  after she buys the notebook

She needs to save  7.75

So....she can spend    9.50 - 7.75  =  1.75

So.....let N be the max number of packages of cookies she can buy  and we have that

.25N   ≤    1.75      divide both sides by .25

N ≤ 1.25 /.25

N ≤  7
