Jake is making birdhouses to sell. The cost to make them is $80 for supplies plus $6.25 per birdhouse. He will sell them for $16 each. What is the minimum # of birdhouses he must sell to make a profit.

I got he must sell more than 8

I did it by setting up

80+6.25x<16x

-6.25 from each side

80<9.75x

80/9.75<9.75x/9.75

8<x

I think this is correct I just want someone to double check my answer.

Thank you
