    Answer: 75 - 1.5g ≥ 20

    Step-by-step explanation: For this problem we will write an inequality to represent this situation.

    Let g = gallons per minute.

    75 - 1.5g ≥ 20

    The inequality above represents this situation because it states that if you start with 75 gallons in the bathtub and are draining 1.5 gallons per minute, you must leave at least 20 gallons or more.
