Fishing Adventures rents small fishing boats to tourists for dayÂlong fishing trips. Each boat can only carry 1200 pounds of people and gear for safety reasons. Assume the average weight of a person is 150 pounds. Each group will require 200 lbs of gear for the boat plus 10 lbs of gear for each person.
a. Create an inequality describing the restrictions on the number of people possible in a rented boat. Solve the inequality, write your answer in interval notation, and graph the solution set.
b. Several groups of people wish to rent a boat. Group 1 has 4 people. Group 2 has 5 people. Group 3 has 8 people. Which of the groups, if any, can safely rent a boat? What is the maximum number of people that may rent a boat?
