How is an inequality different from an equation? Give a real-world scenario in which you would write an inequality rather than an equation.

Daphne has $25. She wants to buy two new paint brushes for her art teacher. Daphne needs to know the average price so she doesn't spend more than $25.

2s < $25
2s÷2=$25÷2
s = $12.50

Is this a good example of a real life scenario where you would use an inequality rather than a equation?

    For those of you that are copying this word from word into your discussion at your online school: stop. A teacher can easily copy and paste your answer into google and find out that you used it. This can also throw you out of school and into jail. Think about your future and your children's future.
