Ice Cream Inequality Word Problem
- Thomas Gebbie
Drew owns a floating ice cream stand on a lake just off a public beach. He is trying to get ready for the big holiday weekend. Drew stocks both bomb-pops and ice cream sandwiches. He figures he has enough space for 50 boxes (they are the same size) and he thinks that he can sell them all. The bomb-pops come in a dozen per box and cost him $1.98 for a box. The ice cream sandwiches come in 6 per box and cost him $5.40. He only has $150 to spend on materials. Given the following axis graph the inequality. What are some possible combinations that Drew could consider? Is one better answer better than the others.
