• Q1
Serena has \$550 in her bank account an Xander has \$50 in his bank account. Serena deposits \$20 into her account each week for w weeks. Xander deposits \$60 into his account each week for w weeks. Assuming the accounts do not earn any interest, which inequality represents this situation when the amount of money in Serena’s account is greater than the amount of money in Xander’s account?
60w + 50 > 550 + 20w
60w + 550 > 50 + 20w
60w + 50 < 550 + 20w
60w + 550 < 50 + 20w

• Q2
Mt. Vernon Middle School and Crescent Point Middle School are selling cookies to raise money. Mt Vernon sells cookies for \$0.50 each and has raised \$200. Crescent Point sells cookies for \$0.75 each and has raised \$150. Which inequality can be used to find, c, the minimum number of cookies Crescent Point Middle School must sell in order to have raised as much money or more money than Mt. Vernon Middle School.
0.50c + 150 ≤ 0.75c + 200
0.50c + 150 ≥ 0.75c + 200
0.50c + 200 ≤ 0.75c + 150
0.50c + 200 ≥ 0.75c + 150

0.75m < 2m
0.75m + 10 > 2m
0.75m + 10 < 2m
0.75m > 2m

Adrian and Isaac are picking apples. Adrian picks 4 apples a minute and has already picked 40 apples. Isaac picks 3 apples a minute and has already picked 70 apples. How many minutes, m, will it take for Adrian to have as many or more apples than Isaac?
4m + 70 ≤ 3m + 40
4m + 70 ≥ 3m + 40
4m + 40 ≥ 3m + 70
4m + 40 ≤ 3m + 70

• Q6
Cindy has \$60 in her bank account while Eric has \$400 in his bank account. Cindy deposits \$5 into her bank account every day while Eric withdraws \$10 from his bank account every day. How many days, d, will it take for Cindy and Eric to have the same amount of money in their bank accounts?
60 + 5d = 400 - 10d
60 - 10d = 400 + 5d
60 - 5d = 400 - 10d
60 - 5d = 400 + 10d

A full 200-gallon tank of water is leaking ½ a gallon of water an hour. An empty tank of water is being filled at a rate of 4 gallons an hour. How many hours, h, will it take for the two tanks to hold the same amount of water?
200 - 4h = ½ h
4h + 200 = ½ h
200 + ½ h = 4h
4h = 200 - ½ h

• Q8
Andrew Jackson Middle School has a student body of 1200 students. Thomas Jefferson Middle School has a student body of 800 students. On average, Andrew Jackson middle school gains 2 students a month whereas Thomas Jefferson gains 20 students a month. How many months, m, will it take for the two schools to have the same amount of students?
800 + 20m = 1200 - 2m
800 + 1200 = 2m + 20m
800 + 20m = 1200 + 2m
800 + 2m = 1200 + 20m

Company A charges a \$15 security deposit plus \$5 an hour to rent a bike. Company B charges a \$5 security deposit plus \$10 an hour to rent a bike. How many hours, h, will it take for the two companies to charge the same amount?
5h - 15 = 10h - 5
5h + 15 = 10h + 5
5h +15 = 10h - 5
5h + 5 = 10h + 15
