## Try with Hints

The basic rule for inequalities can be explained by some imaginary values ………..

Its one of the easiest sum. Here we only have to find the relation between the perimeter of this sum.We have two different perimeter

1. Age
2. Limitation on age
3. So can you try to find the relation between these two that mentioned in this sum. Try to find it …………………………………….

For this sum its mentioned that the age is under 12 that means the age is less than 12.

If we try to implement it in this sum we can express it as :

Age $\leq 12$
