Question 1.

Analyze Relationships Is 3.25 a solution of the inequality you wrote in A ? If so, does that solution make sense for the situation?

Answer:

Inequality for A is the following:

3 ∙ x > 9

We can substitute 3.2 for x and check if inequality is true, so we have the following:

3 ∙ 3.25 > 9

9 ∙ 75 > 9

We got that inequality is true, so, 3.25 can be the solution. And yes, this solution makes sense for the situation.

Question 6.

Geometry The perimeter of a regular hexagon is at most 42 inches. Find the possible side lengths of the hexagon.

Answer:

We can notice that hexagon has 6 sides, so, let x be length of one side of hexagon. Because this is a regular hexagon, all sides have equal lengths. The perimeter is calculated by multiplying side length by 6, so, according to given informations in this task, we get the following inequality:

6x ≤ 42

In order to solve this inequality, we will divide both sides by 6 and get:

\(\frac{6x}{6}\) ≤ \(\frac{42}{6}\)

Answer:

Let x represent sum of money Gary have. According to data from the table and informations from task, we have the following inequality:

\(\frac{x}{0.50}\) ≤ 0.50

In order to solve this inequality, we need to multiply both sides by 0.50 and get:

0.50(\(\frac{x}{0.50}\)) ≤ 5.5 ∙ 0.50

x ≤ 2.75

So, conclusion is that Gary has at most 2.75.

Question 21.

Florence wants to spend no more than $3 on onions. Will she be able to buy 2.5 pounds of onions? Explain.

Answer:

Let x represent the amount of onions Florence can buy.

According to the table and informations, we get following inequality:

In order to soLve this inequality, we need to divide both sides by 1.25 and get:

\(\frac{1.25 x}{1.25} \leq \frac{3}{1.25}\)

x ≤ 2.4

So, she can buy at most 2.4 pounds of onions. Conclusion is she can not buy 2.5 pounds of onions.

Question 22.

The produce buyer for a local restaurant wants to buy more than 30 lb of onions. The produce buyer at a local hotel buys exactly 12 pounds of spinach. Who spends more at the produce stand? Explain.

Answer:

Let x represent the sum of money the produce buyer for a local restaurant will spend for buying onions. So, we have the following inequality :

\(\frac{x}{1.25}\) > 30

In order to solve this inequality, we need to multiply both sides by 1.25 and get:

1.25(\(\frac{x}{1.25}\)) > 30 ∙ 1.25

x > 37.5

So, the produce buyer will spend more that $ 37.5 to by more than 30 lb of onions.

Now, let y represent sum of money the produce buyer for a local hotel will spend for buying exactly 12 pounds of spinach. We have the following equation we need to solve:

y ÷ 3 = 12

y = 12.3

y = 36

So, we can notice that the produce buyer will spend exactly $36 to buy 12 pounds of spinach.

Conclusion is that the produce buyer for a local restaurant will spend more money than the produce buyer for a local hotel.

So, she can at least buy 120 packs of chocolate or more.

Question 25.

**Persevere in Problem Solving** A rectangular prism has a length of 13 inches and a width of \(\frac{1}{2}\) inch. The volume of the prism is at most 65 cubic inches. Find all possible heights of the prism. Show your work.

Answer:

First, we will calculate the area of basis of this rectangular prism multiplying the length by the width and get:

B = 13 ∙ \(\frac{1}{2}\) = \(\frac{13}{2}\)

So, the area of bassis of rectangular prism is \(\frac{13}{2}\) square inches. Formula for calculating the volume is:

V = B ∙ H

Where V is the volume, B is the area of basis and H is its height.

According to all informations in the task, we have the following inequality we need to solve to find all possible heights of prism, where x represent height:

\(\frac{13}{2}\)x ≤ 65

We need to multiply both sides by \(\frac{2}{13}\) and get:

\(\frac{2}{13} \cdot \frac{13}{2} x \leq \frac{65}{1} \cdot \frac{2}{13}\)

x ≤ 10

So, the height of the prism can be at most 10 inches.
