00:00:00.560 --> 00:00:09.280
Matthew ran 600 meters in 90 seconds, while Sophia was at least nine seconds ahead of him.
00:00:10.080 --> 00:00:17.440
Write an inequality to represent the time Sophia finished the 600-meter run.
00:00:18.400 --> 00:00:41.400
So we are writing an inequality, which is less than, greater than, less than or equal to, greater than or equal to, meaning not an equation, not an equal sign, to represent time.
00:00:41.960 --> 00:00:48.480
So the fact that the race was 600 meters long doesn’t matter.
00:00:48.480 --> 00:00:53.280
We’re talking about the time, the 90 seconds.
00:00:54.200 --> 00:00:57.640
So Matthew ran it in 90 seconds.
00:00:58.160 --> 00:01:02.320
And Sophia was at least nine seconds faster than that.
00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:11.720
So if we are faster than someone, we ran the race faster, in a shorter amount of time.
00:01:12.000 --> 00:01:19.280
So she must have ran it less than 90 seconds because she was faster.
00:01:19.840 --> 00:01:26.680
So Sophia’s time is less than Matthew’s time.
00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:28.160
We know that much.
00:01:28.640 --> 00:01:31.920
And Matthew’s time was 90 seconds.
00:01:32.320 --> 00:01:37.080
So we know that Sophia ran it in less than 90 seconds.
00:01:37.600 --> 00:01:55.240
And we know that Sophia was at least — so instead of less than, let’s change it to “at least,” so less than or equal to — nine seconds faster than Matthew.
00:01:55.640 --> 00:01:59.320
So let’s take off nine seconds from his time.
00:01:59.760 --> 00:02:08.080
So we have Sophia is less than or equal to 90 minus nine.
00:02:08.560 --> 00:02:12.360
So we can let Sophia’s time be represented by 𝑥.
00:02:12.720 --> 00:02:18.360
And then 90 minus nine would be 81.
00:02:18.720 --> 00:02:31.640
So if Sophia was at least nine seconds faster than Matthew, then she ran it in less than or equal to 81 seconds.
00:02:32.480 --> 00:02:44.960
So the inequality to represent the time Sophia finished the 600-meter run is 𝑥 is less than or equal to 81.
