The question is that the length of a rectangle is 15 and its width is w. The perimeter of the rectangle,at most,50. Which inequality can be used to find the longest possible width?

A. 30+2w<50

b. 30+2w<or=50

c.30+2w>50

d. 30+2w>or=50

so I did L=15

p=2(15)+2w<or=50 this can't be >50 but it can =

so I put B as the answer. Is this correct?

thank you for checking my work
