00:00:00.480 --> 00:00:08.560
Matthew ran 600 meters in 90 seconds, while Sophia was at least nine seconds ahead of him.
00:00:09.440 --> 00:00:15.640
Write an inequality to represent the time Sophia finished the 600-meter run.
00:00:16.400 --> 00:00:33.680
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.
00:00:34.440 --> 00:00:40.400
So the fact that the race was 600 meters long doesn’t matter.
00:00:41.240 --> 00:00:45.640
We’re talking about the time, the 90 seconds.
00:00:46.680 --> 00:00:49.880
So Matthew ran it in 90 seconds.
00:00:50.160 --> 00:00:53.680
And Sophia was at least nine seconds faster than that.
00:00:54.560 --> 00:01:01.760
So if we are faster than someone, we ran the race faster, in a shorter amount of time.
00:01:02.480 --> 00:01:08.920
So she must have ran it less than 90 seconds because she was faster.
00:01:09.800 --> 00:01:15.480
So Sophia’s time is less than Matthew’s time.
00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:17.080
We know that much.
00:01:17.840 --> 00:01:21.000
And Matthew’s time was 90 seconds.
00:01:21.760 --> 00:01:25.920
So we know that Sophia ran it in less than 90 seconds.
00:01:26.760 --> 00:01:44.280
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.
00:01:45.080 --> 00:01:48.520
So let’s take off nine seconds from his time.
00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:56.080
So we have Sophia is less than or equal to 90 minus nine.
00:01:56.920 --> 00:01:59.640
So we can let Sophia’s time be represented by 𝑥.
00:02:00.320 --> 00:02:04.720
And then 90 minus nine would be 81.
00:02:05.560 --> 00:02:17.880
So if Sophia was at least nine seconds faster than Matthew, then she ran it in less than or equal to 81 seconds.
00:02:18.680 --> 00:02:29.920
So the inequality to represent the time Sophia finished the 600-meter run is 𝑥 is less than or equal to 81.
