Solve It! You want to download some new songs on your MP3 player. Each song will use about 4.3 MB of space. The amount of space available on your MP3 player is shown in the image. At most, how many songs can you download? Hint: 1 GB = 1000 MB

Enter only a whole number without a comma.

- √
- ⊗

- In chemistry class we learned about various chemical compounds.
- Compound inequalities contain more than one inequality symbol.
- To simplify an expression, compound like terms.
