#### Answer

This statement is false.
To make the statement true, we can change it this way:
"The statement “$x$ is at most $5$” is written $x \leq 5$."

#### Work Step by Step

If we translate the phrase "$x$ is at most..." we would write it algebraically as:
$$x \leq ...$$
Therefore, we can translate the statement "$x$ is at most $5$" as:
$$x \leq 5$$
This statement, thus, is false because the inequalities are not the same. For $x < 5$, the solution set is $(-∞, 5)$ whereas with $x \leq 5$, the solution set is $-∞, 5]$ because $5$ is included in the solution.
To make the statement true, we can change it this way:
"The statement “$x$ is at most $5$” is written $x \leq 5$."
