\(5 \) There are \( 8 \) students on the school chess team. They need to raise at least \( \$ 760 \) for a field trip. Their advisor says they still need to raise \( 85 \% \) of the funds, and she wants each of them to raise an equal share of the money still needed. Diego wrote and solved the inequality \( 8 m + 0.85 ( 760 ) \geq 760 \) to find the least amount of money, \( m \) , each student on the chess team still needs to raise. He says the solution is \( m \geq \$ 14.25 \) . Describe and correct Diego's error. 

Answer

The correct inequality should be  

\(8 m \geq \frac { 85 } { 100 } \times 760 \) 

\( 8 m \geq 646 \) 

\( m \geq \frac { 646 } { 8 } \) 

\( m \geq 80.75\)
