    B) 10x + 8y ≥ 210

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We know that we have to sit at least 210 people which means that we can fit more than 210, but no less than 210. This gives us a first step in solving since we know that the equation must be greater than or equal (≥) 210

    This rules out C & D immediately.

    Now we know that circular tables can sit 10 people and are represented by the variable x which means that each circular table will be equal to 10x and that rectangular tables are denoted by y and can sit 8 people making it recognizable by 8y. We know that the people sitting at all of the tables will be added up to give us a number of either 210 or more.

    The only answer that gives us the tables and how many people they seat accurately is B since it is 10x and 8y. We also see that these two numbers are added together to make it greater than or equal to 210.
