Q:
# Maya is trying to break or tie the league record for home runs in her softball league. She solved the inequality mc019-1.jpg to find the minimum number of home runs she must average per week over the five remaining weeks of the season to break or tie the record. What error did Maya make when she chose this inequality to model the situation?She chose the incorrect relation and should have solved 5x<30She modeled “average” incorrectly and should have solved x/5<_30She chose the incorrect relation and should have solved 5x_>30She modeled “average” incorrectly and should have solved x+5<_30

Accepted Solution

A:

The correct answer would be letter C. She needs to either break or tie the record. The less than or equal to symbol in the original inequality would be her scoring less or tying the record. Using the greater than or equal to sign would represent her breaking the record or tying with it. Hope this helped.
