Q:
# Jess will plant up to 27 acres on her farm with wheat and corn. More than 5 acres will be planted with wheat.Let w represent the number of acres of wheat and c represent the number of acres of corn. Identify two inequalities that represent this situation. A. w > 5 B. w + c â‰¤ 27 C. w â€“ c â‰¤ 27 D. c < 5

Accepted Solution

A:

The first thing we do in these cases is to define the variables.

We have then:

w = represent the number of acres of wheat

c = represent the number of acres of corn

We write now the inequalities based is:

"Jess will plant up to 27 acres on her farm with wheat and corn"

w + c <= 27

"More than 5 acres will be planted with wheat"

w> 5

Answer:

two inequalities that represent this situation are:

w + c <= 27

w> 5

We have then:

w = represent the number of acres of wheat

c = represent the number of acres of corn

We write now the inequalities based is:

"Jess will plant up to 27 acres on her farm with wheat and corn"

w + c <= 27

"More than 5 acres will be planted with wheat"

w> 5

Answer:

two inequalities that represent this situation are:

w + c <= 27

w> 5
