14. (9 pts)  Carl wants to purchase custom-made bumper stickers to advertise his business. Two websites offer different deals:

               Website A:  Pay a fee of $100.00, plus $0.40 per bumper sticker

    or        Website B:  Pay a fee of $68.50, plus $0.55 per bumper sticker


At least how many bumper stickers must Carl purchase in order for Website A to be the better choice? Note that “better” means cheaper! Show work. 


Let x = number of bumper stickers. Write an appropriate inequality involving x and solve it algebraically. Write a sentence to carefully state the answer to the question. The sentence should have the form “Website A is the better choice if Carl purchases at least ____ bumper stickers.”
