 1 9 times a number ( q ) is at least 7. 2 The length of a rectangle is 2 units and its perimeter is more than 44 units. Let a = width of the rectangle. Which inequality matches this situation?        a + 2 < 44        2a + 2 > 44        2a + 2 < 44        2(a + 2) < 44        2(a + 2) > 44        a + 2 > 44 3 5 less than a number ( w ) is at most -2. 4 The sum of two consecutive odd integers is at least 19. Let n = the smaller integer. Which inequality matches this situation?        n + (n + 2) ≥ 19        n + n ≤ 19        n + (n + 1) ≤ 19        n + (n + 2) ≤ 19        n + (n + 1) ≥ 19        n + n ≥ 19

 1 Express the following relationship as an algebraic sentence. (Do not include dollar signs, \$, in your answer.) The cost of buying books online is \$10 per book plus \$19 for shipping.  You don't want your spending to exceed \$49.  Let p = number of books you can purchase. 2 Let m be the number of monkeys in a zoo.  What does 5m + 7 represent?        7 less than 5 monkeys in a zoo        5 times the number of monkeys in another zoo that has 7 more monkeys        5 times the number of monkeys in another zoo that has 7 fewer monkeys        7 less than 5 times the number of monkeys in a zoo        7 more than 5 monkeys in a zoo        7 more than 5 times the number of monkeys in a zoo 3 Express the following relationship as an algebraic sentence. (Do not include dollar signs, \$, in your answer.) Let a = number of adult tickets sold weekly, and let c = number of children's tickets sold weekly. At the local theater, adult tickets cost \$6 each and children's tickets cost \$5 each.
