Here's the word problem if it could give you guys any ideas. Angelica's service club is selling flowers for a fundraiser. Each flower costs them $0.50 to purchase. They set the sale price of each flower at the purchase price plus 40%. Write and solve an equation to determine how many flowers they will need to sell to make a profit of $500. Use complete sentences to explain what each number and variable in your equation represents. Write your solution in the context of the original problem.

Yes, I know that x equals 2500. But I'm trying to figure out how you find that.

−0.5x+0.5x+(0.4)(0.5)x≤500 Step 1: Simplify both sides of the inequality. 0.2x≤500 Step 2: Divide both sides by 0.2. 0.2x 0.2 ≤ 500 0.2 x≤2500

Wouldn't it be \[\large \sf -0.50x + 0.50x + (0.40 * 0.50x) = 500\] not \[\large \sf -0.50x + 0.50x + (0.40 * 0.50x) \leq 500\] since they want 500 profit not 500 or less profit?
