# Beth has $900 in the bank. Every time she rides the bus she spends$2. How do you write an inequality that Beth can use to see how many times she can ride the bus and still have more than $500 in the bank? ##### 1 Answer This is the answer for (b) bus rides she takes. $500 < 900 - 2 b$#### Explanation: $500 < 900 - 2 b$$500 - 900 < - 2 b$$- 400 < - 2 b$$\frac{- 400}{- 2} > b$We reverse the signs above because we are dividing by a negative number. $200 > b\$

She can take less than 200(a lot of) bus rides.
