The lunch special at Jimmy John’s costs $5.60. The math club has $50.40 in its treasury. How many lunch specials can the club buy? Write and solve an inequality. Show your work.
i know that regularly you would just divide 50.40 by 5.60 but to display it as an inequality would the proper formula be.
5.60≤50.40
5.60/5.60≤50.40/5.60
=?

  1. Clearly we don't know how many lunch specials we can buy
    Let that number be n
    So the cost of our n lunches would be 5.6n

    Wouldn't 5.6n ≤ 60 ???
    there is your inequality, I will let you solve it

    You are showing just a bunch of numbers that happen to show up in your question
