Grace was cutting out paper snowflakes for the upcoming
school dance. It will take her 20 minutes to make the large
snowflake. It takes her 5 minutes to make each of the
smaller snowflakes. Grace only has 60 minutes to work on
snowflakes before she goes to soccer practice.
Write and solve an inequality that represents n, the
number of smaller snowflakes Grace will have time to
finish. Show your work algebraically.


  1. Answer:

    12 small snowflakes

    Step-by-step explanation:

    if she only has 60 minutes to make them and each small snowflake takes 5 minutes, then we solve with the equation:

    n = 60/5

    *edit: i forgot how to write an equality lol, that isn’t the answer
