Sonia is making a quilted wall hanging that is 38 in wide. if each quilt square is 4 3/4 inches wide, how many squares will she need to complete one row of the wall hanging?
a. 6 1/2
$1.25x > $35
x > 28
an inequality is a type of equation where we use symbols such as greater than (> ) and less than (< ) to solve for a variable that can multiple answers. in this case, we are looking for the number of times a senior citizen must ride the bus in one month for the $35 monthly pass to be a better deal. so, the number of times the citizen rides times the cost of each bus ride must be greater than the cost of the montly pass:
$1.25x > $35, where 'x' represents the number of bus rides
if we solve for 'x' by dividing both sides by $1.25, than we know that x > 28, or that the senior citizen must ride the bus more than 28 times in the month for the monthly pass to be a better deal.
i just did this question.
120/106 = 1.132
150/1.132 = 132.508
0.39 * 60/5 = $4.68
