An online retailer offers free delivery when your purchase totals 50 dollars or more.
00:00:06.650 --> 00:00:08.190
James is preparing his order.
00:00:08.460 --> 00:00:12.100
He has already chosen items which total 42 dollars.
00:00:12.600 --> 00:00:20.560
Write an inequality that describes the condition on π the cost of the additional items he needs to order for him to benefit from free delivery.
00:00:21.030 --> 00:00:30.850
So we need to write an inequality, which is like an equation except instead of an equal sign, we use less than, less than or equal to, greater than, or greater than or equal to.
00:00:31.390 --> 00:00:35.500
And we need to write it in terms of π β the cost of the additional items.
00:00:36.090 --> 00:00:37.230
So letβs start from the beginning.
00:00:37.750 --> 00:00:43.870
In order to get free delivery, we have to spend 50 dollars or more β so greater than or equal to 50.
00:00:44.290 --> 00:00:48.470
So Jamesβs order needs to be greater than or equal to 50 dollars.
00:00:49.000 --> 00:00:53.920
So right now, he has 42 dollarsβ worth of items in his cart.
00:00:55.000 --> 00:01:01.430
So he needs to add π, the additional items needed, to reach that 50-dollar goal.
00:01:02.310 --> 00:01:12.640
So if we would like our inequality to have π by itself, that way we can describe π, we need to subtract 42 from both sides of the inequality.
00:01:13.430 --> 00:01:15.420
So on the left, the 42s cancel.
00:01:15.490 --> 00:01:17.790
And on the right, we have 50 minus 42.
00:01:18.330 --> 00:01:21.010
So this would be a way to describe the condition on π.
00:01:21.590 --> 00:01:25.470
So π needs to be greater than or equal to 50 minus 42.
00:01:26.260 --> 00:01:31.190
Simplifying that will also be another way to describe π.
00:01:31.220 --> 00:01:42.830
The condition on that π would have to be greater than or equal to eight, meaning the additional items that he needs to order need to cost all together eight dollars or more.
