How to solve a question with a constant rate of profit?

Assume the pizzeria starts taking orders at 5:00 PM and the profit is a constant rate of $13 on 10 orders. When will phone order profit exceed $1,000? (Round your answer to the nearest minute.)

I don't think you have copied down all of the information contained within the problem.



#:.770# orders are required for the profit to exceed #$1000#

The question does not mention the rate at which the pizzeria is receiving orders so we are unable to determine the time it will take for the business to get #770# orders.

Can you double check that you have transcribed the question correctly please.

Thanks :)
