6-115.

Jana’s mom gave her $\100$ to shop for some new school clothes. She is at the store and has picked out a pair of pants that cost $\49.50$. She wants to spend the rest of her money buying various colors of a shirt that is on sale for $\12.99$. Write an inequality that can be used to calculate the number of shirts she can buy. Solve your inequality. How many shirts can Jana buy? Homework Help ✎

Jana can spend less than or equal to $\100$, but she has already decided on a pair of pants. This means that the money she has left over must be less than or equal to the $\100$ minus the money she is spending on the pair of pants.

$\12.99(x\ \text{shirts})\le\100-\49.50$

Subtract and remove units to make the inequality easier to solve.
$12.99x\le50.50$

Now solve for the number of shirts, $x$.
