A football team wants to by a football. The football costs $51. There are 11 members of the team. How much will each of the team members contribute to be able to purchase the football if they had $29 already. Solution: Let the amount each team member contributes be x, then 11x + 29 ≥ 51 11x ≥ 51 - 29 11x ≥ 22 x ≥ 22/11 x ≥ 2 I.e. each team member must contribute at least $2 for them to be able to buy the football.
