ranslate the following situation into an inequality. Do not solve.
“Charlie would like to pack one less outfit than Jane for their trip. Loretta would like to bring five outfits less than twice what Jane packs. Due to space in the suitcase, they are limited to a total of 24 outfits. How many outfits can they each pack?” (Points : 3)
C = J - 1
L = 2J - 5
L + C + J = 24
2J - 5 + J - 1 + J = 24
I suspect one of your numbers (constraints) is wrong.
