Mary wants to spend $240 or moreon buying chocolate as presents for guests at her party. One pack costs$2, so, how many packs of chocalate she can buy?
Let x represent the number of packs of chocolate Mary can buy. According to all inforamtions, we get the following inequality:
$$\displaystyle{2}{x}\Rightarrow{240}$$
We need to divide both sides by 2 and get:
$$\displaystyle{2}\frac{{x}}{{2}}\Rightarrow\frac{{240}}{{2}}$$
$$\displaystyle{x}\Rightarrow{120}$$
So. she can at least buy 120 packs of chocolate or more.
