For inspiration on the kinds of word problems you should focus on, read these:

Someone's monthly earnings consist of a fixed salary of $1500 and a 25% commission on all of their monthly sales. To cover planned expenses, they need to earn an income of at least $7500 this month. Write an inequality that will give the amount of sales someone will need to cover their planned expenses.

Your friend is saving for a new TV. They need at least, $700. They have saved $65 and earn $15 for every car that they clean. How long will it take for them to save for the television? 

Shaggy earned $7.55 per hour plus an additional $100 in tips waiting tables on Saturday. He earned at least $160 in all. Write an inequality and find the minimum number of hours, to the nearest hour, Shaggy worked on Saturday.

Due: Wednesday, 18th March.
