Q1:

Pedro and AndrΓ© went on a tour driving to Luxor and Aswan and took turns driving; each day Pedro drove for at least 4 hours and NO more than 8 hours, while AndrΓ© drove at least 2 hours and less than 7 hours. The total time they drove daily was NO more than 9 hours. State the system of inequalities that describes the situation, using to represent the number of hours that Pedro drove and to represent the number of hours that AndrΓ© drove.

Q2:

A shepherd wants to build a rectangular sheep barn. The length of the barn must be more than 88 m and its perimeter must be less than 253 m. Derive the system of inequalities that describes the situation, denoting the length of the barn by π‘₯ and its width by 𝑦 .

  • A π‘₯ > 8 8 , 2 ( π‘₯ + 𝑦 ) < 2 5 3
  • B π‘₯ > 8 8 , π‘₯ + 𝑦 > 2 5 3
  • C π‘₯ < 8 8 , 2 ( π‘₯ + 𝑦 ) < 2 5 3
  • D π‘₯ > 8 8 , π‘₯ + 𝑦 < 2 5 3
  • E π‘₯ β‰₯ 8 8 , 2 ( π‘₯ + 𝑦 ) < 2 5 3

Q3:

A teacher gave his students 100 minutes to solve a test. The students had to solve at least 4 questions from Section A, at least 6 questions from Section B, and answer at least 11 questions in total. If a girl answered each question in Section A in 3 minutes and each question in Section B in 6 minutes, derive the system of inequalities that would help to know how many questions she tried to solve in each section. Use π‘₯ to represent the number of questions answered from Section A and 𝑦 to represent the number from Section B.

  • A π‘₯ β‰₯ 4 , 𝑦 β‰₯ 6 , π‘₯ + 𝑦 β‰₯ 1 1 , 3 π‘₯ + 6 𝑦 ≀ 1 0 0
  • B π‘₯ ≀ 4 , 𝑦 ≀ 6 , π‘₯ + 𝑦 ≀ 1 1 , 3 π‘₯ + 6 𝑦 = 1 0 0
  • C π‘₯ β‰₯ 4 , 𝑦 β‰₯ 6 , π‘₯ + 𝑦 β‰₯ 1 1 , 3 π‘₯ + 6 𝑦 β‰₯ 1 0 0
  • D π‘₯ > 4 , 𝑦 β‰₯ 6 , π‘₯ + 𝑦 β‰₯ 1 1 , 3 π‘₯ + 6 𝑦 β‰₯ 1 0 0
  • E π‘₯ > 4 , 𝑦 > 6 , π‘₯ + 𝑦 β‰₯ 1 1 , 3 π‘₯ + 6 𝑦 ≀ 1 0 0
