Algeria has decided to take out an advertisement in the U.N. newspaper, Liberty Daily. The newspaper charges a base fee of $\1200$ for an ad. There is an additional fee of $\300$ for every inch in height. If Algeria is willing to spend any amount up to (and including) $\2700$, what choices does the country have for the height of the ad?

Let $x$ represent the extra inches in height.

Write an inequality using the information in the problem.

$300x+1200\le2700$

Find the boundary point.

Test numbers on both sides of the boundary point.

$x\le5$
