Julia has $80. She wants to purchase a nail paint set for$16 ans earrings. She spends the rest of the money on earrings. Each pair of earrings cost $8. Write an inequality for the number of pairs of earrings she can purchase? So, after the nail set is bought, she will have 80-16 left, that is 64. If each pair of earrings costs 8 dollars, then she can buy 64/8 =8: She can buy 8 pairs of earrings. I don’t see how you can make an "inequality" with this. If the question is interpreted that she doesn’t spend all her money, then we could say, if we must that if y=number of earrings she can buy then y≤8 Julies has 80 dollars => She wants to purchase$16 nail paint set
and spent the rest of her money on earrings which costs 8 dollars.
Write and inequality:
Let E be the number of earing she bought.
=> 16 + 8E = 80
=>  8E = 80 – 16
=> 8E = 64
=> 8E / 8 = 64 / 8
=> E = 8
