a.) Use an inequality to represent the situation.

b.) Determine the solution and use it to solve the problem.

c.) verify your solution

For a.) i got x < or equal to 150, is it right?

2. Customers can use a pottery studio's kiln and equipment. They can pay in 2 ways for access to the studio. How many uses in a year would make the mebers plan the better option?

let the number of books she can buy be x

x ≤ 150/4

x ≤ 37.5 books

but x must be a whole number, so

x ≤ 37

check:

if she buys 37 books, cost = 4(37) = 148, which is within her limit

if she buys 38 books, cost = 4(38) = 152 , which goes over her limit of 150

so x ≤ 37

2.

single use: cost = 37.50n, where n is the number of uses

member use: cost = 285

we want 37.5n ≤ 285

divide by 37.5

n ≤ 285/37.5

n ≤ 7.6

but we can't have a partial visit, so consider

n = 7 or n = 8

Which one?

Well, with the single use plan,

7 visits would cost 7(37.5) or $262.50 which is < 285

8 visits would cost 8(37.5) or $300 which is > 285

So for 8 or more visits, the membership plan would be best, for 7 or less the single use plan would be better.
