A ferry boat holds 800 people. There are 260 people already on the boat. The owner of the boat wants to load several tour groups on. The tour groups come in sizes of 40 people or 50 people. The owner would like an equal number of each size of tour group on the boat. What is the greatest number of tour groups that can be loaded onto the boat? Use the verbal model to write an inequality. Then solve the inequality. What does this solution mean in this equation?

Number of people the boat can hold is greater than or equal to The Number of people already on the boat + Number of 40 people tour groups x 40 people + Number of 50 people tour groups x 50 people..

Please explain how to solve this in step by step detail
