Miranda's financial aid stipulates that her tution not exceed $1500. If her college charges a $45 registration fee plus $ 425 per course4, what is the greatest number of courses for which Miranda can register?

PsyDAG,
From your data, with x = number of courses:
45 + 425x < 1500
Solve for x, rounding to smaller whole number.
