Which is heavier, The Thrust SCC that is 54 ft long and weighs 7 tons or the Spirit of America that is 47 ft long and weighs 4 tons?? The numbers need to be put into an inequality equation!

Unless you have not adequately stated your question, no equation is needed. The answer is in your question. 7 tons is always heavier than 4 tons.

However, you can use this inequality:

7 tons > 4 tons.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

1. SUM OF THREE DIFFERENT POSITIVE INTERGERS. WHAT ARE THE NUMBERS?

2. THE FRACTION 5_ -IS HALF WAY BETWEEN
8 0.5 AND WHAT FRACATION

Wt of SCC > wt of Spirit of AM

or

Wt of Spirit of AM < Wt of SCC

Also
Let X = Wt of SCC
Let Y = Wt of Spirit of America

Then
X>Y
or
Y<X
