Q:

Question 14 Yoko's final exam has true/false questions, worth 4 points each, and multiple choice questions, worth 5 points each. Let x be the number of true/false questions she gets correct, and let y be the number of multiple choice questions she gets correct. She needs at least 85 points on the exam to get an A in the class. Using the values and variables given, write an inequality describing this.

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:4x + 5y ≥ 85Step-by-step explanation:If x is the number of true/false questions she gets correct, the total of points she will get for those x questions will be 4x.If y is the number of multiple choice questions she gets correct, the total of points she will get for y questions will be 5y.She needs at least 85 points to get an A, this means she needs 85 points of more on the exam.Thus, the inequality would be 4x +5y ≥ 85.
