Solution

The correct option is **A** 2n+5≤25

Cost of entry (dollars) = 5

Cost of playing n games (dollars) = 2n

Total cost (dollars) = 2n + 5

Total cost can be at most $25

Therefore, 2n+5≤25

Cost of entry (dollars) = 5

Cost of playing n games (dollars) = 2n

Total cost (dollars) = 2n + 5

Total cost can be at most $25

Therefore, 2n+5≤25
