Sizes of envelopes. Rhetoric Advertising is a direct-mail company. It determines that for a particular campaign, it can use any envelope with a fixed width of 3½ in. and an area of at least 17½². Determine (in terms of an inequality) those lengths that will satisfy the company constraints.

Expert's answer

We know that the area of rectangle is calculated:

w=7/2 - fixed

7/2

At least means that it’s more then 17 and width is constant.

*A=wl*where w-width, l-length and A is an area of a rectanglew=7/2 - fixed

7/2

*l*>=35/2 =>*l*>=35/7 =>*l*>=5At least means that it’s more then 17 and width is constant.
