Q:
# A student earns $7.50 per hour at her part-time job. She wants to earn at least $200.Enter an inequality that represents all of the possible numbers of hours (h) the student could work to meet her goal.Enter the least whole number of hours the student needs to work in order to earn at least $200.

Accepted Solution

A:

Total amount of cash the student earns per hour is $7.5, let the time taken to earn $200 be h, thus the inequality representing this will be:

7.5h≤200

thus

h≤80/3

writing in whole numbers we shall have:

h≤27

7.5h≤200

thus

h≤80/3

writing in whole numbers we shall have:

h≤27
