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
