Example 1

Grace does not remember how much money she has in her bank account. She does recall spending $18.20 for lunch, $54.50 for a pair of shoes, and $26.00 for gasoline for her car. She knows that she must have at least $300.00 left as her bank requires this minimum daily balance. Write and solve an inequality that represents the amount of money in Grace’s account before she spent any money.
