12≥0.65x+1.75

x=15

Step-by-step explanation:

flat rate:1.75

plus

0.65 dollars per mile

max amount is 12 dollars

12≥0.65x+1.75

is the inequality.

now lets solve it

0.65x+1.75≤12

Subtract 1.75 from both sides.

0.65x≤10.25

Divide both sides by 0.65.

x≤15.769231

now round nearest mile.

15 miles is the maximum amount because if Mandy traveled 16 miles Mandy would have to pay over 12 dollar amount.
