    The least number of deliveries that Bobby must make to reach his goal is 14

    Solution:

    Given that,

    Bobby per $9 per hour and $6 for each delivery he makes

    Let “D” be the number of delivery he makes

    He wants to earn more than $155 an 8 hour work day

    Thus a inequality is framed as:

    9 ( 8 ) + 6(D) > 155\\\\72 + 6D > 155

    Subtract 72 from both sides

    72 + 6D – 72 > 155 – 72

    6D > 83

    Divide both sides by 83

    D > 13.83

    Thus least number of deliveries that Bobby must make to reach his goal is 14
