 Question 569896: I have an assignment for solving inequalities. I had to write an expression that would represent the cost of any amount of ceramic tile given that ceramic tile costs \$2.00 per square ft. (use variable c to represent a square foot of ceramic tile). Do not write an equation. My answer to this was \$2.00 per square ft=2c. Write an expression that would represent the cost of any given amount of the decorative tile given that decorative tile costs \$5.00 per square ft. (use variable d to represent a square ft of decorative tile). I wrote \$5.00 per square ft=5d Would you please let me know if this is correct because there still are 10 more parts to this and I have to write them as inequality equations.
