# How do you write a compound inequality to represent the scenario. You'll need to bring at least $15 to the movies but you won't need more than$25. Let m represent the money brought to the movies?

$15 <=$m <= $24 #### Explanation: The information gives the minimum and the maximum amount of money which will be needed. "At least$15" means that amount or more than that.
"At most or not more than $25" means that amount or less. In both cases the given value is included. If the amount of money is $m, we can write:
$15 <=$m <= $24 This is the math way of saying "any amount from$15 to $25". If we were trying to say "any amount between$15 and $25", these values are NOT included and we would write: $15 < $m <$24
