Question

Write an inequality to represent the following:
Steve's height is at least 48 inches.

  1. h < 48    
  2. h = 48    
  3. h > 48    
  4. h ≥ 48    

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: h ≥ 48


    The given statement is as follows:
    Steve’s height is at least 48 inches.
    Let the height of Steve be represented using the variable “h”.
    Steve’s height is at least 48 inches means, it cannot be shorter than this height. The height can be greater than this value or equal to this value.
    So, the height is greater than or equal to 48 inches.
    The sign for greater than or equal to is “ ≥ 48 “
    The mathematical representation of the inequality is as follows:
    h ≥ 48
    This is the given inequality.

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