Question:

Kyra has a budget of $300 for her holiday spending. Kyra decides to buy shoes for her grandchildren. If each pair of shoes costs $40, and Kyra has n grandchildren, which of the following inequalities represents Kyra’s budget constraint?

A \(40n \leq 300\)
explanation

If Kyra buys n pairs of shoes at a cost of $40 each, she pays $40n. Since she only has $300 to spend, $40n must be less than or equal to $300: \(40n \leq 300\)
