Admission to the fair costs $7.75. Each ride costs you $0.50. You have $15 to spend at the fair including admission. Which inequality represents the number of rides you can ride?
r ¡Ý 15

r ¡Ü 14

r < 14

r > 14

  • Math -

    number of rides --- r
    so
    .5r + 7.75 ≤ 15
    .5r ≤ 7.25
    r ≤ 14.5
    but r has to be a whole number, (can't have a partial ride)
    so r ≤ 14
