(a)(i)

x ≤ 20

(a)(ii)

Let n be the number of model cars he can have.

x ≤ 20

14 + n ≤ 20

n ≤ 6

Hence, he can have at most 6 more model cars.

(b)(i)

17 < x ≤ 20

(b)(ii)

Let m be the number of model cars he can have.

x < 17

14 + m > 17

m > 3

Hence, he can have at least 3 more model cars.
