How is an inequality different from an equation? Give a real-world scenario in which you would write an inequality rather than an equation.

Daphne has $25. She wants to buy two new paint brushes for her art teacher. Daphne needs to know the average price so she doesn't spend more than $25.

2s < $25
2s÷2=$25÷2
s = $12.50

Is this a good example of a real life scenario where you would use an inequality rather than a equation?

  10. @wonder wolf Right you need to stop? Think about what your going? You will git kick out of school?

    Don't talk to us like a parent would when you're about to fail English. Every word you say spells out, "you have the IQ and mental capacity of a smallmouth bass out of a river." Get good.

  12. Inequalities differ from equations because equations show you the value of something while an inequality show is something is greater than, less than, equal to, greater that equal to, or less than equal to. Sammy has $32. She wants to buy 2 new watercolor palettes. Sammy needs to know the average price so she does note exceed the price limit.

    2s<32
    2s/2=32/2
    s=$16

  13. @Wonder wolf 🐺 Dont act like a parent. if you are just gonna scold us for being on here then why are you here too? You are acting like a stuck up roach and nobody else here wants to read that when they come on here for help. Plus we all know you would do the same thing if you were at risk of having an F-. Mind your business youpiecee of trash!🤬

  16. For those of you that are copying this word from word into your discussion at your online school: stop. A teacher can easily copy and paste your answer into google and find out that you used it. This can also throw you out of school and into jail. Think about your future and your children's future.
