$1500+125(h-3)\leq2125$ Distribute 125: $1500+125h-375\leq2125$ Combine like terms: $1500-375+125h\leq2125$ Simplify: $1125+125h\leq2125$ Subtract 1125 from both sides: $1125-1125+125h\leq2125-1125$ Simplify: $125h\leq1000$ Divide both sides by 125: $\frac{125h}{125}\leq\frac{1000}{125}$ Simplify: $h\leq8$ The most hours that they can use the ballroom is 8 hours.
