    let pastries = p if they want to raise at least $140, and profit = ($3.50)(pastries) then 140 =< 3.5p therefore p >= 40 They must sell at least 40 pastries: \[p \ge 40\]

    3.50p≥140;p≥40 or 140p≥3.50;p≥40

    140 is the total we dive it by 3.5 so we can find how many pastries we need so \[\frac{ 140 }{ 3.5 } = 40\] pastries needed in order to meet the goal so they must sell at least 40 of them so 40 or more pastries must be sold
