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
