Here is a problem from my textbook:

Cyril is going to buy a coat and a hat. The coat costs 3 times as much as the hat. He cannot spend more than $120. What is the most he can spend for the coat?

See, I know how to solve inequalities, but I dont get how you write them!

I know:
c=3h
the end will look like this: < or equal to $120

please help!
