Question

# Write an inequality to represent the following:

Sally's age is at most 15.

- s = 15
- s < 15
- s ≤ 15
- s > 15

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: s ≤ 15

### The given statement is as follows:

Sally’s age is at most 15.

Let the age be represented using the variable “s".

Sally’s age is at most 15 means, the age cannot be greater than 15. It also means the age can be 15.

So, the age is less than or equal to 15.

The sign for less than or equal to 15 is "≤ 15"

The mathematical representation of the inequality is as follows:

s ≤ 15

This is the given inequality.

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