Samuel is running a 3-mile race. he would like to finish the race in under 33 minutes. he has already run for 10.5 minutes. which inequality represents the situation? 10.5 + x mc001-1.jpg 33 10.5 + x < 33 10.5 + x mc001-2.jpg 33 10.5 + x > 33

For this case we have the following inequality:

[tex]10.5 + x \ \textless \ 33 [/tex]

From here, we define the variable x.

x: number of minutes remaining to finish the race.

From here, we clear the value of x.

We have then:

[tex]x \ \textless \ 33-10.5 [/tex]

[tex]x \ \textless \ 22.5 [/tex]

Therefore, Samuel has less than 22.5 minutes to finish the race in the estimated time.

x < 22.5; Sam has fewer than 22.5 minutes left to finish running.

The answer to the is the first one: O x< 22.5; Sam hasa maximum of 22.5 minutes left to finish running.

10.5 + 22.5 = 33

I think that the answer is 10.5

Hope this helps

10.5+x<33

That the answer

B 10:5+x<33

Step-by-step explanation:

The answer is 10.5 to this problem

Second Option

x < 22.5; Sam has fewer than 22.5 minutes left to finish running

Step-by-step explanation:

We have the following inequality

[tex]10.5 + x < 33[/tex]

Notice that 10.5 is the amount of time in minutes that Samuel has run.

x represents the amount of additional time it will take to finish the race

33 represents the time limit in which you want to finish the race

The we solve the inequality

[tex]10.5 + x < 33[/tex]

Subtract 10.5 on both sides of the inequality

[tex]10.5 -10.5 + x < 33-10.5[/tex]

[tex]x < 33-10.5[/tex]

[tex]x < 22.5[/tex]

This result means that Samuel must finish the race before 22.5 minutes have elapsed

The answer is the second option

B. x < 22.5; Sam has fewer than 22.5 minutes left to finish running.
