Roberto has $200 in spending money. He wants to buy some video games that cost $25.50 each. Write and solve an inequality to find the number of games, g, that Roberto can buy.

How many games, g can he buy if the games are $25.50 each, and he can only spend $200.

25.50 x 7.8 does not equal 200

Actually, 7.843 times 25.50 does equal 200. But we are not working toward an equation with an = here, we are working toward an inequality. So the solution as described in the original text shows the number of games that can be purchased by solving the inequality and it came to “7.8”. This implies that as many as 7 games can be purchased with about 80% of the purchase of a new game left over.
