You make 20 silk flower arrangements and plan to sell them at a craft show. Each flower arrangement costs $12 in materials, and your booth at the craft show costs $30. If you sell the arrangements for $24 each, how many must you sell to make at least $100 profit?

(20 * 12) + 30 = 270

270 + 100 = 370

370 / 24 = 11.25

He must sell at least 12 to make $100 profit.
