Using Inequalities to find the Minimum Length of a Fence
Problem Statement:
You are building a new fence for your pet llama Jeffery. You only have enough room to make the width of the fence 12 meters long, and the perimeter must be at least 36 meters for Jefferey to have enough space to get his daily exercise. At least how long must the length of the fence be to give Jefferey enough space? Graph your solution on the number line on the grid.
/* Code generated by RoboBlockly v2.0 */
#include <linkbot.h>
CLinkbotI robot;
double radius = 1.75;

robot.traceOff();
robot.driveDistance(6, radius);
robot.traceOn();
robot.driveDistance(18, radius);
printf("The length must be greater than or equal to 6");
