Write and solve an inequality to represent the situation below. Write your solution as a sentence.

Vinita wants to rent a skateboard and only has $\20$. She found out that the shop will charge her \$8 to rent the skateboard plus $\3.75$ per hour. She does not know how long she wants to rent it. What are her options?

$3.75x+8\le20$

Find the boundary point.

$3.75x+8=20$

Solve for $x$.

$3.75x=12$

$x=3.2$

Vinita can rent the skateboard for up to $3.2$ hours.
