    Let x represent the number of shirts. Let y represent the number of pens.

    If shirts are on sale for $11.99 each, then x shirts cost $11.99x.

    If pants are on sale for $12.99 each, then y pants cost $12.99y.

    The total cost is $(11.99x+12.99y).

    Sarah can spend up to $65. Then an inequality that represents this situation is

    11.99x+12.99y≤65 (this inequality holds when Sarah can spend $65 too)

    or

    11.99x+12.99y<65 (this inequality holds when Sarah can spend less than $65).
