    Answer: The fewest number of calendars they can sell is 813

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Hi, to answer this question we have to write an inequality with the information given:

    The number of calendars that they sell is represented with the variable x, we have to multiply that variable for the amount that they earn per calendar (0.40).

    That expression must be equal or higher than their goal (325)

    0.40x ≥325

    Solving for x:

    x ≥325/40

    x≥812.5

    x≥813 (rounded, since if they sell 812 they don't reach their goal)

    The fewest number of calendars they can sell is 813.
