She has 60 days until when she wants to donate the blankets, but she also wants to skip crocheting some days so she can volunteer in other ways.Write an inequality to determine the number of days, Darcie can skip crocheting and still meet her goal.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:x≤ 60 - (3÷1/15)Step-by-step explanation:Number of blankets to be made = 3Darcie crochets 1/15 blanket per dayTo crochet one carpet she needs = 15 daysTo crochet three carpets she needs = 15*3 = 45 daysNumber of days she had = 60 daysShe can skip days = 60-45 = 15 daysLet x be the number of days to complete her work.Thus the equation becomes x≤ 60 - (3÷1/15) You can solve for x to determine the number of days, Darcie can skip crocheting, you will get the answer 15....
