She purchased a new lemon squeezer for $9.00. The cost of the ingredients for each serving of lemonade is$1.50.
She will be selling each serving of lemonade for $2.25. Write an inequality that represents the minimum number of servings of lemonade, x, Malika must sell for the money from her sales to exceed the total cost of making the lemonade. ## 2 Answers 0 like 0 dislike The inequality that represents the minimum number of servings of lemonade is 1.50x>2.25x+9.00. We have given that, Malika is making lemonade to sell at a school fundraiser. What is the total cost? The total cost is the addition of all the costs. Malika must sell for the money from her sales to exceed the total cost of making the lemonade. Because the 1.50 has to go there because 2.25 is greater than 1.50, the 9.00 is at the end because there is not a variable. How to know where variables go is the each. She purchased a new lemon squeezer for$9.00.

The cost of the ingredients for each serving of lemonade is $1.50. She will be selling each serving of lemonade for$2.25.

Therefore we get the inequality that represents the minimum number of servings of lemonade is  1.50x>2.25x+9.00.
