1. If a pharmacist is filling small empty bottles with cough syrup from a larger bottle. The statement that  describes the number of small bottles the pharmacist can fill is: A. The pharmacist can fill 30 bottles or fewer.

### Number of small bottles the pharmacist can fill

Given:
inequality=1,000-25x ≥250
Let x represent the number of small bottles
Hence:
1,000-25x ≥250
Collect like terms
1,000-250 ≥25x
750 ≥25x
Divide both side by 25x
x=750/25
x=≤30 bottles or fewer
Therefore If a pharmacist is filling small empty bottles with cough syrup from a larger bottle. The statement that  describes the number of small bottles the pharmacist can fill is: A. The pharmacist can fill 30 bottles or fewer.
