The area of a rectangle is, at most, 23 square inches. The width is 4.5 inches.

What are the possible measurements for the length of the rectangle?

What are the possible measurements for the length of the rectangle?

Area of a rectangle = width x length

x = width

4.5 = length

4.5x ≤ 23 {the area is at most, 23 in²}

x ≤ 5.1 {divided both sides by 4.5}

**the length is less than or equal to 5.1 in**
