Translate a real-world written description into an algebraic inequality in the form of *x *> *a*, *x *< *a*, *x *≥ *a* or *x *≤ *a*. Represent the inequality on a number line.

### Examples

Mrs. Anna told her class that they will get a pizza if the class has an average of at least 83 out of 100 correct questions on the semester exam. The inequality *g* ≥ 83 can be used to represent the situation where students receive a pizza and the inequality *g *< 83 can be used to represent the situation where students do not receive a pizza.

### Clarifications

*Clarification 1:*Variables may be on the left or right side of the inequality symbol.
