Ms. Sue,
I'll get you started.
5 + _9____< 15
Can you do the other two?

shy,
um when it asks three whole numbers does that mean all the answers have to be 3 digits?

Whole numbers mean don't use a fraction!

Y0gi,
Does it have to be 3 different numbers or the same one? The number 8 fits into all 3 equations. If not then you can do the math. Take the first equation which is 5 + x < 15
subtract 5 from both sides. Then the equation is x < 10 so you could take any number that is less than 10 and it would make the equation true.

sdf,
just do it it is not hard it can be three digets but a whole number is a number greater than zero so no fractions
