John must have at least 289 test points to pass his math class. He already has test scores of 72, 78, and 70. Which inequality will tell him at least how many more points he needs to pass the class? A. 72 + 78 + 70 + x < 289 B. 72 + 78 + 70 + x ≥ 289 C. 72 + 78 + 70 + x ≤ 289 D. 72 + 78 + 70 + x > 289

The question is the following: "John must have at least 289 test points to pass his math class. He already has test scores of 72, 78, and 70. Which inequality will tell him at least how many more points he needs to pass the class? The 289 points that he needs will be a sum of all the points he received, 3 of which we know and the forth one will be x. So the Left side will be: 72 + 78 + 70 + x Now, he needs to have 289 points or more - so the answer is :B. 72 + 78 + 70 + x ≥ 289 (equal or greater than)
