Grace wants to buy some new clothes, but she cannot afford more than $75 before the sales tax is added. The blouses she wants are priced $17 each and the pants she wants are priced $25 each. Which inequality could be used to determine b, the number of blouses, and p, the number of pants that Grace can afford?
The amount she will pay must be less than or equal to $75.
b = number of blouses at $17 each
p = number of pants at $25 each
17b + 25p ≤ 75 is the inequality.
