Write, solve, and graph an inequality for the following:
Jared charges parents $40 to give their first child piano lessons and $24 for each additional child. Ms. Gloria does not want to spend more than $100 for the lessons. How many of Ms. Gloria's eight kids can receive piano lessons?
40 + 24N ≤ 100 where N is the number of additional children who can take lessons
Subtract 40 from each side
24N ≤ 60 divide both sides by 24
N ≤ 60/24 = 2.5......round down to 2
So these two plus the first child can take lessons = three in total
Thanks, GM, for the compliment....but....I'm definitely NOT the smartest person on this website, by a long shot !!!!
