Answer:

Step-by-step explanation:

Let c represent the minimum number of crafts that Odell must sell at the fair.

Odell spends $55 on supplies to make holiday crafts to sell at a local fair. This means that the total cost of supplying c crafts would be $55

If he decides to sell each craft for $2.50, then the total revenue from selling c crafts would be

2.5c

If he wants to earn more than $130 selling the crafts, the inequality that can be used to determine the minimum number of crafts that Odell must sell at the fair is

2.5c – 55 > 130
