x $\leq$10

#### Work Step by Step

Let x = number of hours dog walking 15-x= number of hours tutoring 8 (15-x)+7.5x$\geq$115 120-8x+7.5x$\geq$115 (Distributive property) 120-0.5x$\geq$115 (Addition property) 5-0.5x$\geq$0 (Subtract 115 from both sides) 5$\geq$0.5x (Add 0.5 x to both sides) 10 $\geq$ x (Divide 0.5 by both sides) or x $\leq$10
