We are told that the drama class wants to raise at least $2500. In an inequality, we would represent this by saying that the target sum has to be greater than or equal to$2500.Targetsum≥2500
The target sum is the earnings from ticket sale and the donations of $470.Earningsfromticketsale+470≥2500
If we let x represent the number of tickets the drama class needs to sell, the product of x and the price of a single ticket, $10, represents the earnings from ticket sale.
By solving the inequality for x, we can find the number of tickets they need to sell.
