At Most, At Least Inequality

I know that word problems involving inequalities use the terms AT MOST AND AT LEAST. For AT MOST, the symbol less than or equal to is applied and for AT LEAST, the symbol greater than or equal to is applied.

Do I apply the AT MOST OR AT LEAST symbol to the question:

How many bicycles must be produced each day for the average cost to be NO MORE THAN $100?

In other words, the words NO MORE THAN imply AT MOST OR AT LEAST?

"for the average cost to be NO MORE THAN $100" means *at most $100*.

Ok. I can now work out the word problem in my book. By the same reasoning, NO LESS THAN indicates AT LEAST, right?
