Question

# Write an inequality to represent the following:

The ticket to the movie costs $10. How much money should Kristin take with her?

Let x represent the amount of money Kristin takes with her.

- x > 10
- x ≥ 10
- x < 10
- x ≤ 10

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: x ≥ 10

### The given statement is as follows:

Ticket to the movie costs $10.

We are asked how much money Kristen needs to take with her.

The variable x represents the amount of money.

The cost of the ticket is $10. So, Kristen will need at least this much amount. She cannot take less than this. But, she can take money greater than this amount.

So, the variable x can be greater than or equal to 10.

The sign for greater than or equal to is “≥10”

The mathematical representation of the inequality is as follows:

x ≥ 10

This is the given inequality.

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