# Math Help - Not a difficult inequality, just drawing a blank

1. ## Not a difficult inequality, just drawing a blank

"Edgewood High School is planning a field trip to Everglades National Park. On the trip, there must be a minimum of one adult for every eight students. The buses can carry a maximum of 480 people.
"A. Define Variables and write a system of inequalities to represent this situation."

Supposing Adults = A & Students = S, I have:
A+S<480
A>8S

Is this even wrong? Blah, it just doesn't seem right.

2. hi

$A+S \leq 480$

$8A \geq S$

If for example there are 16 students, S=16, $A \geq \frac{16}{8} =2$

3. Ahh! I love you! See, I had a feeling something was wrong.
