Jordan decides to start a garden care service. He plans to charge $20 for the first hour and $10 for each additional hour that he spends working on a garden. He works 5 days a week and takes care of one different garden each day. How many hours will he need to work if he wants to earn at least $250 a week?
Write an inequality for the total number of hours he needs to work. Solve the inequality and check your answer.
I know it $20(5)+ $10(3 hrs)= $250.
I don't think this is completely right...please help

    $20(5)+ $10h > $250

    100 + 10h > 250

    10h > 150

    h > 150/10

    h >= 15
