    Another Solving Inequalities

    I used to be a consultant for Scentsy Wickless Candles. Instad of just taking orders over the computer or doing parties for others I would rent a booth at fairs, or flea markets. Column A would be the items I would need in order to do these events and Column B would be the items that I would sell.
    Column A
    Rent a booth or table: $30 Variable=R
    Gas to get back and forth from the event: $15 Variable=G
    Order Forms: $10 Variable=F
    Decorations to make table stand out: $15 Variable=D
    Reciepts: $10 Variable= A
    Column B:
    Large Warmer: $40 Variable=L
    Medium Warmer: $30 Variable=M
    Plug in Warmer: $25 Variable=P
    Scentsy bars (wax): $5/ea Variable=B
    Room Sprays: $8 Variable= S
    Total of Set A= $80
    Total of Set B= $108

    The prices for Set B are each...So $40 for each large warmer, and so on. I hope I did this right.

    I'm afraid I do not understand what you are saying here. First, some of the things you are listing as "variables" are not variables but constants: you pay the "booth rental" and "gas", etc. only once for each event. Also you say that "order forms" and "receipts" are $10. Surely that is not the cost of each order form or receipt! You need the cost of each one. Also, do you use both an "order form" and a receipt for each sale? And you can use some of those things, such as the "decorations" at more than one place can't you?
