Problem 12 :

4x - 2 > 17  and  3x + 5 < 24

Solve the above system of inequalities for integer value of x.

the sum of 120k and 215j

120k + 215j

does not exceed

2500

2500

120k + 215j ≤ 2500

Therefore, the correct answer is option (C).

Let x be the number.

one half of x

½x

decreased by 3

-3

is at most

-5

-5

½x - 3 ≤ -5

Therefore, the correct answer is option (A).

b ≤ 2.2

In the given answer choices, 3 is not a solution.

Therefore, the correct answer is option (D).

0.6(k - 7) - 0.3k > 1.8 + 0.9k

0.6k - 4.2 - 0.3k > 1.8 + 0.9k

0.3k - 4.2 > 1.8 + 0.9k

-0.6k - 4.2 > 1.8

-0.6k > 6

k < -10

Therefore, the correct answer is option (B).

4m - 3 ≤ 2(m + 1)  or  7m + 23 < 15 + 9m

 4m - 3 ≤ 2(m + 1)4m - 3 ≤ 2m + 22m - 3 ≤ 22m ≤ 5m ≤ 2.5 7m + 25 < 15 + 9m-2m + 25 < 15-2m < -10m > 5

m ≤ 2.5  or  m > 5

Among the answer choices, 2 is the only solution to the compound inequality.

Therefore, the correct answer is option (A).

In the above graph, rise of the boundary line is 3 and run is 4.

slope m = ¾

y-intercept of the boundary line is 3.

Equation of the boundary line in slope-intercept form :

y = (¾)x + 3

Write the above equation in standard form.

4y = 3x + 12

4y - 3x = 12

Conparing the above equation with the given answer choices, options (C) and (D) can be rejected.

Select a point in the shaded region and check with the inequalities in options (A) and (B). Let's use (-4, 3).

In option (A),

4y - 3x > 12

4(-4) - 3(3) > 12

-16 - 9 > 12

-25 > 12

(false)

In option (B),

4y - 3x < 12

4(-4) - 3(3) < 12

-16 - 9 < 12

-25 < 12

(true)

Therefore, the correct answer is option (B).

Select a random point in each section and check the given system of inequalities.

Let's use (3, 0) in section A.

2y - 3x ≤ 6 ----> -9 ≤ 6 (true)

y > 1 - x ----> 0 > -2 (true)

Since the point in section A satisfies both the inequalities in the given system, we dont have to verify the other sections.

Therefore, the correct answer is option (A).

3 ≥ x

-1 ≤ y

Graph the given system of inequalities in the xy-plane.

The solution to the system of inequalities is the shaded region shown in the graph above. Its solutions include points in all four quadrants.

Therefore, the correct answer is option (D).

y < ax + 1

y > bx - 1

Since (1, 0) is a solution to the system of inequalities, substitute x = 1 and y = 0 in the given inequalities.

y < ax + 1 :

0 < a(1) + 1

0 < a + 1

-1 < a

a > -1

Statement I is true.

y < bx - 1 :

0 > b(1) - 1

0 > b - 1

1 > b

b < 1

Statement III is true.

Since a > -1, the possible values for a are

a = 0, 1, 2, .......

Since b > 1, the possible values for are

b = ....... -2, -1, 0

When a = 0 and b = -2,

a + b > 0 ----> -2 > 0 (false)

When a = 1 and b = -1,

a + b > 0 ----> 0 > 0 (false)

When a = 2 and b = 0,

a + b > 0 ----> 2 > 0 (true)

We for some set of values of a and b, statement III is false and for some set of values of a and b, statement III is true.

So, we can not conclude that statement III is true or false.

Therefore, the correct answer is option (C).

y ≥ 12x + 600 ----(1)

y ≥ -6x + 330 ----(2)

Multiply both sides of (2) by 2 and add it to (1).

(1) + 2 ⋅ (2)

3y ≥ 1260

y ≥ 420

Therefore, the minimum possible value of y is 420.

-6 ≤ 3 - 2x ≤ 9

-9 ≤ -2x ≤ 12

4.5 ≥ x ≥ -6

3.5 ≥ x - 1 ≥ -7

-7 ≤ x - 1 ≤ 3.5

Therefore, the greatest possible value of (x - 1) is 3.5.

4x - 2 > 17  and  3x + 5 < 24

 4x - 2 > 174x > 19x > 4.75 3x + 5 < 243x < 19x < 6.33

Combining the above two inequalities,

4.75 < x < 6.33

The integer value for x is 5 or 6.
