Suppose you want to use hardwood flooring for most of a 750 square foot apartment. Labor costs are $250 plus a $2 feet per square foot of installation. The cost per square foot of hardwood flooring is $7.00. Write an inequality to show the square feet in the apartment you would have a budget for installing hardwood flooring.Can you explain to me how to take the figures in this question and put them into an inequality? Thank you.

  • Math -

    Cost = 250 + 9x, where x is the number of square feet you are going to cover, x ≤ 750

    Did you forget to include a maximum amount you wanted to spend?

  • Math -

    No. The question does not include a maximum amount.
