You can register a pickup truck as a passenger vehicle if the truck is not used for commercial purposes and the weight of the truck with its contents does not exceed 8500 pounds. Your pickup truck weighs 4200 pounds. Write an inequality to represent the numer of pounds your truck can carry and still qualify as a passenger vehicle. Then solve the inequality. A cubic yard of sand weighs about 1600 pounds. How many cubic yards of sand can you haul in your truck and still qualify as a passenger vehicle? Explain your reasoning.
