Suppose you work in a clothing store. Each week you earn $250 plus a commission equal to 2.5% of your sales. This week your goal is to earn no less than $350. Write and solve an inequality to find the amount of sales you must have to reach your goal.

  • algebra -

    p=pay, s=sales

    p = 250 + .025s

    you want at least 350 pay

    p >= 350
    250 + .025s >= 350
    .025s >= 100
    s >= 4000

    so, sell at least $4000 -- get busy!
