Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here'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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0−0.5x+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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn'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?
