The number of cupcakes a cafe sells each day is 𝑐. To make a profit, the cafe must sell more than 100 cupcakes every day. Write an inequality that describes when the cafe starts to make a profit.

When dealing with single inequalities, we have four possible options. Firstly, we have π‘₯ is greater than π‘Ž. Secondly, we have the situation where π‘₯ is less than π‘Ž. The third and fourth options both contain the situation where π‘₯ is equal to π‘Ž. The third one states that π‘₯ is greater than or equal to π‘Ž and the fourth one, π‘₯ is less than or equal to π‘Ž.

In this question, we’re told that the number of cupcakes must be more than 100 in order for the cafe to make a profit. This can be written as an inequality 𝑐 is greater than 100.
