    he wants more than $1.00 profit on each one which means more than $1 above his cost of $0.50 he will want to charge more than $1 + $0.50 = $1.50 do you know how to write the inequality to show p (for price) is bigger than 1.50 ?

    yes. you put the "big side" of > next to the bigger "thing" , in this case p and the "small side" of > next to the smaller number 1.50
