A tea pitcher at a banquet holds about 12 cups of tea. When the pitcher has 1 glass or less of tea left, the waiter dumps the tea out and pours in a pitcher full. Each tea glass at the banquet holds 8 ounces of tea. Assuming each person fills his or her glass; write an inequality that represents the number of people who can fill their glass before the pitcher needs to be refilled.

1 cup = 8 ounces

so if 11 people fill their cup then it is time for a refill


let x = the number of glasses of tea filled by a person


 when x > = 11 then refill pitcher
