The country hall charges a rental fee of $1000 and at least $3000 for food. Olivia is planning a class reunion. If she had chosen a buffet that costs $38.56 per person what is the minimum possible number of people who must attend to support the expense?

This isn’t a very well constructed question, but I’m assuming it’s really asking how many people are needed, at $38.56 per person, to meet or exceed $3,000 for food.

    \begin{align*}38.56x&>3000\\x&>77.8\\x&\geq 78\end{align*}
