## Answers ( )

Let the number of hours = h

Multiply the rate per hour by hours and add to the rental fee.

This at most can equal the amount you have.

Equation: 6h+ 13.50 <= 37.50

Solve for h:

6h + 13.50 <= 37.50

Subtract 13.50 from both sides:

6h <= 24.00

Divide both sides by 6:

H <= 4

You can rent the canoe for 4 hours maximum.
