50y + 75x ≥ 1000 ;

50(15) ≥ 750;

x ≥ 4

y ≥ 15

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that :

Number of stickers sold = y

Cost of sticker = 50

Cost of bag tag = 75

Number of bag tags sold = x

Total worth of items sold ≥ 1000

1)

50y + 75x ≥ 1000

2.)

To make atleast 15 stickers

y ≥ 15

Atleast 15 stickers :

50(15) ≥ 750

3.)

A possible solution :

50(15) + 75(x) ≥ 1000

750 + 75x ≥ 1000

75x ≥ 250

x ≥ 3.33

x ≥ 4

y ≥ 15
