Write an inequality and solve the inequality showing how much you can spend and if you can buy the headband.

40 ≥ x +23

(-23) ( -23)

17 ≥ x

Problem 2 :)

Your teammate on your soccer team has the most scoring goal record on your team. Your teammate scored 30 goals this season and 24 goals last season. You have scored 26 goals this year and X goals last season. Write an inequality to show how many goals you would have to score in order to beat your teammates combined goal scoring record for last season and this season .
30 + 24 < x + 26


54 < x + 26

-26 - 26

28 < X

Problem 3 :)

Sammi's parents give her 400 dollars and told her to come up with the rest. Sammi decided to save 25 dollars each week for the basketball net. Write and solve an inequality that will show how many weeks it will take Sammi to make the remaining of the money.
600 ≤ 400 + 25w

-400 -400

200≤ 25w


8 ≤ W
