Answer:

D. 7

Step-by-step explanation:

The question is incomplete. Here is a possible complete question

For the given expression, which whole number (w) will make the expression true? 5/6 < w/6

A. 3

B. 4

C. 5

D. 7

Given the inequality expression:

5/6 < w/6

Cross multiply

5×6 < 6×w

30<6w

Divide both sides by 6

30/6 = 6w/6

5<w

Reciprocate both sides(this will change the sense of the inequality)

1/5>1/w

Cross multiply

w > 5×1

w>5

This shows that the value of w is a value greater than 5 but not 5. According to the option, the only value greater than 5 is 7. Hence the whole number (w) that will make the expression true is 7
