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
