# Jessie's Canoes rents canoes for $20 for the canoe plus $35 per hour. You do not want to spend more than $150. What is the maximum number of hours that you can afford to rent a canoe?

The maximum number of hours we could rent the canoe would be 4 hours.

First, let's write the formula for the cost of renting a canoe from Jessie:

Because we don't want to spend "MORE" than $150 this will become an inequality.

We need to solve:

The maximum number of hours we could rent the canoe would be 4 hours.

To find the maximum number of hours you can afford to rent a canoe from Jessie's Canoes, set up an inequality representing the total cost not exceeding $150:

(20 + 35h \leq 150)

Where (h) represents the number of hours rented.

Now, solve for (h):

(35h \leq 150 - 20)

(35h \leq 130)

(h \leq \frac{130}{35})

(h \leq 3.71)

Since you can't rent a fraction of an hour, the maximum number of hours you can afford to rent a canoe is 3 hours.
