She calculates her profit by subtracting her operating costs from the money she earns from the manicure she gives. In a given day, the beautician expects to make a profit of at least $85. If the beautician gives m manicure in a day. Which inequality best models this situation?15m−35≥8515m+35≥8515(m+35)≥8515(m−35)≥85 Solution ## The correct option is A 15m−35≥85The beautician wants to make a profit of at least$85.
