The math club is holding a fundraiser by selling pies. If they sell each pie for $12, how many pies do they need to sell if they want to make at least $500? Define a variable, then write and solve an inequality to represent this situation. SHOW YOUR WORK.

  1. p = number of pies
    12 p >/= 500
    so
    p >/= 500/12 = 41 2/3 pies
    BUT no one bakes 2/3 of a pie
    so
    p >/= 42
