Your inequality would be 261.50 less than or equal to 65x+ 99 now to solve this you would begin by isolating 65x you would do this by subtracting 99 on both sides. 162.50 less than or equal to 65x to get x alone [because thats what youre solving for] you need to divide by 65 on both sides. x= 2.5 Now you can check youre work 261.50 less than or equal to 65(2.5) + 99 youll get  261.50 less than or equal to 261.50
