Sid and Libby are planning to sell pies
at a local fair. They spend $200 to rent
a table at the fair. Their costs for
ingredients, other supplies, baking, and
packaging are $3.00 per pie. Sid and
Libby plan to sell the pies for $8 each.
How many pies must they sell at the fair
before they start making a profit?
