You did not give the options. the inequality would be 22> .75 (7) + 1.25 (b) - this simplifies to 22 > 5.25 + 1.25(b) - You subtract 5.25 from both sides to get 16.75>1.25b _ Divide both sides by 1.25 to get b by itself to get 13.4> b _ This means that she can buy at most 13 bottles because you cannot buy part of a bottle So the equation is 13>b - The number of bottles she can buy is at most 13 P.S Dash under greater than sign it won't let me type it
