    what you need to do first is work out how many cans we have already got so you add 135 cans with 89 cans and the answer is 224 cans so we have 224 cans in total what we need to establish is how many can more we need before we reach our target of 325 cans so we do this: 325 - 224 = 101 cans needed (thats question b answered) now to put this as a inequality you should write: \C[\ge\101]
