The solution to \(5-3x > 35\) is either \(x>\text-10\) or \(\text-10>x\). Which solution is correct? Explain how you know.
The school band director determined from past experience that if they charge \(t\) dollars for a ticket to the concert, they can expect attendance of \(1000-50t\). The director used this model to figure out that the ticket price needs to be $8 or greater in order for at least 600 to attend. Do you agree with this claim? Why or why not?
