Business A buys an item at a price of $175 for 50 units. The business pays a shipping company $0.49 per item to transport the items to its store. The retail price is $4.99 per each unit. If Business A needs to make at least a $1500 profit to meet its goal, how could you set up an inequality to represent this situation?

Business A pays $175 for 50 units. How much must Business A pay to have all 50 units shipped to Business A?
Vianne
  • Vianne
Whoops I meant $4.99 I did $175/50 :L Or am I correct?
Vianne
  • Vianne
$24.5 to have all of them shipped?

  • mathmale
Note that PROFIT = REVENUE - EXPENSES. Can't answer your statement, " I did $175/50." What do you mean by "I did ..."?

How much to have 1 shipped? How much to have 10 shipped? How much to have 175 shipped?
Vianne
  • Vianne
$0.49 to have 1 shipped. $4.9 to have 10 shipped. $85.75 to have 175 shipped.

So what are you're total expenses if you add shipping and cost of the products?
Vianne
  • Vianne
Wait we're only shipped 50 units correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wait no revise that, what are the total expenses of ONE unit
Vianne
  • Vianne
$4.99 for retail price.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah but that contains a margin that the retailer puts there, what does the company SPEND to get it to them?
Vianne
  • Vianne
$4.5 for one unit if you do 175/50
anonymous
  • anonymous
Recheck your math it's not 4.50
Vianne
  • Vianne
Whoops, typo, I meant 3.5 :L I feel dumb....
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah and now add your shipping onto there
Vianne
  • Vianne
$3.99
anonymous
  • anonymous
So the total expense are 3.99 and you sell them for 4.99
Vianne
  • Vianne
So then you do $4.99 x 50?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So you're making a profit of 1.00 on each one you sell
Vianne
  • Vianne
Oh
anonymous
  • anonymous
But it's asking for an inequality
anonymous
  • anonymous
So let x=the number of units you sell
anonymous
  • anonymous
Then write an inequality for when x exceeds 1500
Vianne
  • Vianne
x => 1500?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Not => just >
anonymous
  • anonymous
And there you go
Vianne
  • Vianne
Wait, are you serious?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yup $1 dollar profit on each one so there is no coefficient for the x Thats your answer
Vianne
  • Vianne
Derp, thanks.. xD
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wait, it's not just > its > or equal to
anonymous
  • anonymous
Make sure you have that
anonymous
  • anonymous
You're welcome
Vianne
  • Vianne
I was thinking of => because it says AT LEAST.. So wouldn't it be greater than or equal to ?
