Anyone know how to do this, i'm not sure. Sharon earns $25 per item she sells plus a base salary of $100 per week. Write and solve an inequality to find how many items she must sell to earn at least $700 per week. Provide your conclusion as a complete sentence.

    subtract 100 from both sides 25x >= 600 can you continue to find the vales of x?
