Question

Write an inequality to represent the following:
a is at most 6.

  1. a ≤ 6    
  2. a ≥ 6    
  3. a < 6    
  4. 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.
