# An upcoming marathon's qualifying time for males age 18-34 is 3hours. How do you write an inequality that represents how many hours a male runner could take to run a marathon in order to qualify?

$t \le 3$

#### Explanation:

We know that a male has to run for a maximum of 3 hours to qualify for the marathon.

This means the time must be less than or equal to 3 hours .

If we let $t$ be the time a male runner must take to qualify, then we know that:
$t \le 3$

Hope this helps!
