**Answer:**

**He need to sell atleast 10 car to make atleast $2000.**

**Step-by-step explanation:**

Given : Bryan sells cars. He makes a salary of $500 a week, plus $150 for every car he sells. This week, he wants to make at least $2000.

To find : How many cars does he need to sell, Write an equation and solve.

Solution : He makes a salary = $500 per week .

He gets for every car sell = $ 150.

Let us consider the number of cars he need to sell = x.

Total cost for x car = $150 * x.

According to question he wants to make atleast = $2000.

We will use” greater than or equal to “sign for atleast then equation become:

150x + 500 2000.

Now, we need to solve the inequality for x :

On subtracting by 500 both sides

150x 2000 -500.

150x 1500.

On dividing by 150 both sides ,

x 10.

**Therefore, he need to sell atleast 10 car to make atleast $2000.**
