Question

# Lourdes plans to jog at least 1.5 miles . Write and solve an inequality to find X, the number of hours Lourdes will have to jog.

Hint:

## The correct answer is: 7/15≤x

### Step 1 of 2:We know that the equation to find the distance is:Distance = time × speedHere, distance is at least 1.75 miles and speed is 3.75 miles.Let x be the time.It is said that the distance is at least 1.75 miles, so it can be more than that. Hence, distance>1.75miles.Thus, the required inequality is:1.75 ≤ 3.75xStep 2 of 2:Solve the inequality, to get the time.Thus, the value of time must be at least 7/15 hours.

A distance is generally the amount of space or length that separates two people, objects, or situations. For example, four meters separate two streetlight poles, for instance, as a distance measure.
Where Distance = time × speed
Example: We kept a safe distance between two objects. At the same time, we notice a new space between object one and object 2. Although once close, there was a significant gap between the objects. However, wishes to distance themself from the object's former boss.
