**Answer:**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

**Given : **

Tom needs to schedule employees to staff the deli department at least 260 person-hours per week.

Tom has one part-time employee who works 20 hours per week.

Each full-time employee works 40 hours per week.

**To Find: ** An inequality to determine n, the number of full-time employees Tom must schedule, so that his employees will work at least 260 person-hours per week.

**Solution :**

Suppose that there are n number of full time employees.

**Since each full time employee work for 40 hours per week .**

**So, n full time employees work for 40*n =40 n hours per week **

And we are given that **he has one part-time employee who works 20 hours per week**. so, this part time employee hours are **fixed** .

Since , Tom needs to schedule employees to staff the deli department at least 260 person-hours per week.

Thus inequality becomes :

**Hence the inequality to determine n, the number of full-time employees Tom must schedule, so that his employees will work at least 260 person-hours per week :**
