Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0She makes b blankets in one month. When she sells them, she receives 29.95b from sales. Each month she pays $175 for the machine. It costs her 5.95b to make b blankets in one month. She spends 5.95b + 175 each month in expenses. To make a profit, she must receive more money from sales than she spends in expenses, so the inequality you need is 29.95b > 5.95b + 175
