Step 1
Let the number of hours be 'x'
Then charge by the rental company is
given by
$4x+15$
Step 2
'M' wants to spend no more than $27 Then the inequality is $4x+15\le 27$ Step 3 solve the inequality $4x\le 27-15$ $4x\le 12$ $x\le \frac{12}{4}$ $x\le 3$ 'M' can rent the bicycle for atmost 3 hours We have step-by-step solutions for your answer! unjulpild9b Answered 2022-09-16 Author has 2 answers The total cost for X hours is the fixed cost of$15 plus the variable cost of $4 per hour which is equal to $4×X$, so the total cost is $4×X+15$ If Margie does not want to spend more than$27 then the inequality is
$4×X+15\le 27$
$4×X\le 12$
$X\le 3$
If Margie does not want to spend more than \$27 then she cannot rent the bicycle for more than 3 hours
