Jake makes and sells pies. He sells each pie for $5.75. The materials to make each pie costs Jake $4.00. The boxes Jakes put the pies in cost $0.75 each. Jake wants to know how many pies (p) he needs to sell to earn a profit of at least $50. Which inequality should Jake use? A) 50 ≤ 5.75p - 4.75p B) 50 ≥ 5.75p - 4.75p C) 50 ≤ 5.75p - 3.25p D) p ≤ 5.75(50) - 4.75p 10) As a salesperson, you are paid $100 per week plus $3 per sale. This week you want your pay to be at least $160. Write an inequality for the number sales you need to make, and describe soultion A)100 - 3s ≤ 160;
