How many ice cream cones must he sells at $1.10 each in order to make a profit? Write an inequality that represents how many ice cream cones must be sold to make a profit.

Thank you in advanced s:

  • Math ( Word Problem ) -

    The sales must exceed the cost.
    sales on n cones = 1.1n
    cost of n cones = 49 + .043n

    So, you need

    1.1n > 49 + .043n
    1.057n > 49
    n > 46.3

    So, she must sell at least 47 cones to make a profit.
