    Answer:

    11 games

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Write and solve an inequality:

    $5 + ($0.85)x ≤ $15

    Subtracting $5 from both sides, we get:

    ($0.85)x ≤ $10.

                        $10

    Then x ≤ ————- = 11.76

                     $0.85

    But you can play only an integer number of games.  Thus, we round x down to 11.

    The max number of games you can play is 11.
