    Renting video games from Store S costs $2.50 per game plus a monthly fee of $5.00. Renting video games from Store T costs $5.00 per game with no monthly fee. The monthly cost to rent video games depends on the number of video games, v, rented. Which inequality represents the situation when the monthly cost at Store S is less than the monthly cost at Store T?
    2.5v +5>5v
    2.5v +5<5v
    7.5v>5v
    7.5v<5v

  • Q2
    Veronica is ordering trophies for her school. Company P charges $3.50 for each trophy and a one-time engraving fee of $25. Company R charges $7.50 for each trophy and a one-time engraving fee of $17. Which inequality can be used to find x, the minimum number of trophies that can be ordered so that the total charge at Company P is less than the total charge at Company R?
    3.5 + 25x < 7.5 + 17x
    3.5x + 25 > 7.5x + 17
    3.5 + 25x > 7.5 + 17x
    3.5x + 25 < 7.5x + 17

  • Q3
    Two eighth-grade classes are selling raffle tickets to raise money. • One class is selling tickets for $2.50 each and has already raised $350. • The other class is selling tickets for $3.00 each and has already raised $225. Which equation can be used to find t, the number of tickets each class needs to sell so that the total amount raised is the same for both classes?
    350t + 2.50 = 225t + 3
    2.50 t + 350 = 3t + 225
    3t + 350 = 2.50 t + 225
