Answer:

x ≥ 42

Step-by-step explanation:

If you must be at least 42 inches tall to ride the bumper cars at an amusement park, this means that the minimum average height you can have is 42in i.e you can be more than 42inches tall.

The right inequality sign to represent this situations is a “greater than or equal to sign”(≥)

If x represent the heights of people who are allowed to ride the bumper cars, the required inequality expression will be x ≥ 42
