4x + 60 ≤ 800

x ≤ 185

(Wow, as a canoeist I must tell you this is an absurd question.

Four 185 pounders and gear in one canoe ???

**Feliz**, Monday, January 4, 2010 at 2:33pmAt most is represented by using the symbol ¡Ü, which stands for less than or equal to.

We can use any letter to represent the average weight for each person.

I will use W.

800 ¡Ü 4 times W and 60 pounds of supplies

800 ¡Ü 4W + 60

800 - 60 ¡Ü 4W

740 ¡Ü 4W

740/4 ¡Ü W

185 ¡Ü W
