Test 8 Section 4 #12

This is a translation question. We need to take the words in the problem and use them to write 2 mathematical inequalities.

First, take the part about Roberto’s goal to sell 57 insurance policies. The question says “While he did not meet his goal,” which means he sold fewer than 57 policies. So we know one of the inequalities we want is x+y<57.

At the same time, we’re told he did sell more than $3,000,000 worth of policies, so the second inequality we want is 50,000x+100,000y>3,000,000.

The choice that combines these two inequalities is C.
