Q:
# Cari owns a horse farm and a horse trailer that can transport up to 8,000 pounds of livestock and tack. She travels with 5 horses whose combined weight is 6,240 pounds. Let t represent the average weight of tack per horse. Which of the following inequalities could be used to determine the weight of tack Cari can allow for each horse?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:5(1248 lb/horse + t lb) ≤ 8000 lbStep-by-step explanation:One way to do this is to find the average weight of the 5 horses:It is:6,240 lb---------------- = 1248 lb/horse 5 horsesand to this, for each horse, we must add t lbs tack.Thus, 5(1248 lb/horse + t lb) ≤ 8000 lbwould be an appropriate inequality.Please note that your question mentions "the following inequalities;" that means you are expected to share them! Please do so next time. Thanks.
