Mrs. valdez wanted to determine the number of people, p, she could safely take in her car to the fun run. she determined that p < 5. which statement best describes a possible number of people she can take in her car? mrs. valdez can take –2 people because –2 < 5. mrs. valdez can take 2 people because 2 < 5. mrs. valdez can take 3.5 people because 3.5 < 5. not this mrs. valdez can take 5 people because 5 < 5. its not c what is the first step in solving the inequality < –1? multiply both sides by 6. add 2 to both sides. not this one change the direction of the inequality. change the inequality to ≤.
for the first question b,
it doesn't make sense for choice a to have -2 people in the car. You can't have a negative amount of people. For choice choice c, you can't have half a person, and for choice d, Ms. Valdez can only have under 5 people, not five people exactly.
for the second question I need to see the whole inequality, generally there is a variable, and all i see is <-1, which is invalid.
hope this helps, if it does like it pls!!
Second option: Mrs. Valdez can take 2 people because 2<5.
You have the following information given in the problem:
- represents the number of people she could safely take in her car.
- She determined that: .
The symbol "<" means "less than", therefore, the number of people must be less than 5.
Since the number of people can not be a negative number or a decimal number, you can conclude that the correct option is the second option: Mrs. Valdez can take 2 people because 2<5.
Mrs. Valdez can take 2 people because 2 < 5.
Since it's number people, it has to be a natural number.
-2 & 3.5 are not natural numbers
5 is a natural number but 5 is not less than 5,
5 < 5 is not a true statement
She can take 2 people cause it’s less than 5
