Sarah has decided to purchase a new vehicle. She has her eye on a new sports car or on a new SUV. The sports car costs $21,500 and has estimated operating costs of $1,800 per year. The SUV costs $19,800, but operating costs are estimated to be $2,300 per year. If x represents the number of years, choose the inequality that describes the number of years the SUV is less expensive than the sports car. Do not solve.
