1. Answer: Step-by-step explanation:

We know that the area of a triangle is given by :- Let b be the base (in feet)  of the triangle .

it is given that  , The school wants the height of the triangle to be 6 feet.

Then, the area of triangle will be :- (1)

The area of the logo must be at most (less than or equal to) 15 square feet.

i.e. Area ≤ 15 square feet         (2)

Now, Substitute the value of A from (1) into (2) , we get Divide both sides by 3  , we get Hence, the inequality that describes the possible base lengths (in feet) of the triangle :
