i would like to check my homework can you please help me? homework is worth 50% of my grade. You have 50 dollars and are going to an amusement park. You spend 25 dollars for the entrance fee and 15 dollars for the food. You want to play a game that cost. $0.75. Write and solve an inequality to find the possible number of times that you can play the game. If you play the game the maximum number of times, will you have spent the entire $50? explain

I'm not sure but this is the inequality I came up with: 0.75x + 40 \[\le\] 50

The reason being is $40 is gone because of the entrance fee and food costs.

The game which costs $0.75 will be divided into $10...here is where I'm not certain because you don't get a whole number. you get 13.33333 times to play the game to reach $50
