Number problems. You have at least $30 in change in your drawer, consisting of dimes and quarters. Write an inequality that shows the different number of coins in your drawer.
okay this is what i have:
Let “d” be the number of dimes and “q” be the number of quarters.
Then the value of the dimes is 10d cents; Value of the quarters is 25q cents.
Inequality: 10d + 25q = 3000
is the correct form for inequality or do i have to use another greater than or equal sign instead of the "="
use the greater than or =
If its an inequality statement, then an = sign by itself if not an inequality; rather, it is a equality.
Then would this be correct.
10d + 25q <=3000
No. You have it less than thirty dollars.
that means it should be:
yes. The change is equal to or greater than thirty dollars.
