Question

The cost per watt, in dollars, of installed solar panels in the United States t years after 2000 can be approximated by c1t2 = -0.42t + 11. In 2011, the cost per watt of installed solar panels in Germany was $3.42. Using an inequality, determine those years for which the cost in the United States will be less than the 2011 cost in Germany.
