Write an inequality to describe the following sentence: The offer is valid for any item that costs less than six dollars.

We know that an inequality will contain one of four symbols. In order from top to bottom, we have greater than, less than, greater than or equal to, and less than or equal to. In this case, we want our inequality to be less than six dollars. If we let the cost be 𝑥 dollars, then 𝑥 is less than six. This is the correct inequality that describes the sentence.
