1. ## inequalities

Marcus can spend no more than $120 on jeans and shirts for school. He buys 3 pairs of jeans at$32 each. If x represents the dollar amount he can spend on shirts, which of the following inequalities could be used to determine the possible values for x ?

(A) (3) x 32- x 120
(B) (3) x 32- x 120
(C) (3) x 32+x 120
(D) (3) x 32+ x 120
(E) x (3) x 32

2. since he can spend no more than $120, that means that he can spend$120 or less than that.

the first spend is $\displaystyle \$3\times32$and the last is$\displaystyle x,$so the total amount is$\displaystyle 3\times32+x$which can not exceed but it can be equal to$\displaystyle \$120,$ hence our inequality is $\displaystyle 3\times32+x\le120.$

3. Nevermind, the above post has given a full answer.
