# Write an inequality to represent the following:Tracy's car can fit up to 5 friends. Which inequality represents the number of friends she can drive?Let x represent the number of friends Tracy can fit in her car.

## x > 5    x ≥ 5    x < 5    x ≤ 5 Hint:

## The correct answer is: x ≤ 5

### The given statement is as follows:Tracy’s car can fit up to 5 friends.We are asked to find inequality for the number of friends she can driveThe variable x represents the number of friends that can fit Tracy’s car.Tracy’s car can fit 5 friends means, this is the maximum limit of the number of friends that can fit her car. She can drive number of friends equal to 5 or less than 5. As more friends cannot fit in the car, 5 is the limit.So, the variable x can be less than or equal to 5The sign for less than or equal to 5 is “≤5”The mathematical representation of the inequality is as follows:x ≤ 5This is the given inequality.

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