a. write an inequality that gives the possible numbers (p) of pins you have to make per minute in order to exceed your goal.
b what are the possible numbers of pins you have to make per minute in order to exceed your goal?

225 pins made, 400 pins needed
400 - 225 = 175 left to make
120 min to make 175 pins

a. 120p > 175
b. p > 1.46

to check,
120 min * 1.46 pins/min = 175.2 pins
