See the solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, let's call the score she needs in the third game $s$.

The total score or the sum of the three games must be at least 627 and we know the score of the first two games so we can write:

$222 + 194 + s \ge 627$

Solving for $s$ gives:

$416 + s \ge 627$

$- \textcolor{red}{416} + 416 + s \ge - \textcolor{red}{416} + 627$

$0 + s \ge 211$

$s \ge 211$

For Karina to have a total score of at least 627 the third game must be a 211 or higher.
