like who does that Which inequality represents how many meters

x jill needs to swim to reach that goal Phrases

like more than and twice as many sound like everyday

phrases but both are encoded tightly with mathematical clues just

waiting to be cracked very specifics You gotta be exact

when you describe them start with a phrase twice a

cz many well for every meter jill swims katie swims

too We don't know how many meters jail was able

tio doggy paddle though so that value is x The

number of meters katie swims is two x will combine

the girls swim x plus two Acts or 3 acts

meters If you get that everything is a smooth sailing

or swimming or whatever Whatever value three ex winds up

being it must be mohr than three sixty if the

girls want to meet their goal well the problem doesn't

say anything about three sixty being adequate so use the

greater than symbol not the greater than or equal to

symbol Yeah so that that d there would be wrong

it's gotta be c three Acts is simply greater than

3 sixty not equal to it and that's the accurate

representation of the number of meters jail needs to cover 00:01:28.064 --> [endTime] that's it we're done
