Answer:

r ≤ 29, r-5

The sale price can be compared with the regular price, r-5 ≤ 24

Step-by-step explanation:

Amount to spend = $24

Regular price = r

Sale = $5

Sale Price = r-5

The regular price will be $5, at the max, more than the amount Roopesh has to spend.

The sale price will be $24 or less than that for Roopesh to afford.

Inequality for regular price:

r-5 ≤ 24

r ≤ 29

So, the product Roopesh can afford is $29 or less than that.

What is the unknown?

r ≤ 29

Following expression can represent the sale price:

Sale price = r-5The sale price can be compared with the regular price with the following:

Inequality representing the situation:

r-5 ≤ 24
