Question

To conserve water, many communities have developed water restrictions. The water utility charges a fee of $34, plus an additional$1.36 per hundred cubic feet (HCF) of water. The recommended monthly bill for a household is between $60 and$85 dollars per month. If x represents the water usage in HCF in a household, write a compound inequality to represent the scenario and then determine the recommended range of water consumption. (Round your answer to one decimal place.)

60 ≤ 1.36x − 34 ≤ 85; To stay within the range, the usage should be between 69.1 and 87.5 HCF.
60 ≤ 1.36x − 34 ≤ 85; To stay within the range, the usage should be between 44.1 and 87.5 HCF.
60 ≤ 1.36x + 34 ≤ 85; To stay within the range, the usage should be between 37.5 and 44.1 HCF.
60 ≤ 1.36x + 34 ≤ 85; To stay within the range, the usage should be between 19.1 and 37.5 HCF.
