Question

# Write an inequality to represent the following:

a is at most 6.

- a ≤ 6
- a ≥ 6
- a < 6
- a > 6

Hint:

### We are given a statement. We have to write the expression of inequality for the given statement. We have to see the limits given for the required value.

## The correct answer is: a ≤ 6

### The given statement is as follows:

a is at most 6.

The given variable is a.

a is at most 6 means, the maximum value it can have is 6. It is the higher limit of it. It can have any lower value that that.

So, the variable a can be less than or equal to 6.

The sign for less than or equal to 6 is “ ≤ 6”

The mathematical representation of the inequality is as follows:

a ≤ 6

This is the given inequality.

For such questions, we have to be careful about the limits.
