# Inequality Word Problem 1

### From Homeworkwiki

**Kate Bush is a chrome-plater. She is paid $1.95 per item over 500 pieces and $1.05 per item if equal to or under 500 items. What would her pay be if she plated 567 pieces on Tuesday, 409 pieces on Wednesday, and 1,254 pieces on Thursday? **

**Answer:**

She will pay on Tuesday = 567 × $1.95 = $ 1105.65 [Because 567 > 500 ]

She will pay on Wednesday = 409 × $1.05 = $ 429.45 [Because 409 < 500 ]

She will pay on Thursday = 1,254 × $1.95 = $ 2445.30 [Because 1254 > 500 ]
