Joshua has to earn more than 92 points on the state test in order to qualify for an academic scholarship. Each question is worth 4 points, and the test has a total of 30 questions. Let x represent the number of test questions Joshua answers correctly.Which of the following inequalities represents the scenario in which Joshua qualifies for an academic scholarship?

A 4x > 92
Explaination

In order to qualify for an academic scholarship, Joshua must earn more than 92 points. Since each question is worth 4 points, and x represents the number of questions he answers correctly, the number of points he earns is 4x. The number of points must be more than 92, so the inequality that represents Joshua qualifying for the academic scholarship is 4x > 92.
