    Answer:

    60-11x < 20

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let’s first set out all the information we know.

    • Jade has only $60, so we cannot go above the amount she has.
    • Each movie costs $11
    • She wants at LEAST $20 remaining  

    So, the first thing that will be in the inequality would be $60. Since you are wasting money, you have to subtract.

    The thing that will be subtracted more than once is $11, so it will have the variable “x” added to it.

    What we have so far is:

    60-11x

    Because this is an inequality, we will have a less than sign.

    After that, we can conclude that $20 will come next because that is at the end of the problem.

    So, the answer is:

    60-11x < 20
