## Answers ( No )

Let w be the additional watts you can add on the circuit.

1100 + w < 1800 (write the inequality)

-1100 -1100 ( – 1100 from each side)

w < 700 (simplify)

ANSWER:

You can add up to 700 watts to the circuit, which means that you can also plug in the clock radio and the blender.

LOOK BACK:

You can check that your answer is correct by adding the numbers of watts used by the microwave oven, clock radio and blender.

1100 + 50 + 300 = 1450

The circuit will not overload because the total wattage is less than 1800 watts.
