Q:
# Mr. Bobby plans to spend no more than $200 on pizza and soda for a party. Each pack of soda costs $5.00 and each pizza costs $8.00. What inequality could Mr. Bobby use to determine how many packs of soda, s, and how many pizzas, p, he can buy?

Accepted Solution

A:

One side of the inequality would be the final amount, $200 and we would use 200Γ’β°Δ since he wants to spend no more than that.
The other side of the inequality would be the amount spent on pizzas and sodas. Since each pizza is $8.00, that term would be 8p or $8.00 x the number of pizzas. Sodas would be 5s for the same reason.
So putting this all together, the inequality would be:
200 Γ’β°Δ 8p + 5s
