Calculations:
Let the time spent in making the cabinet be t hours.
Now profit made after selling the cabinet is 500125=$375
Therefore profit made per hour is $375t
Now it is said that the wood worker should earn at least $25 per hour.
Therefore,
$375t25
Now solving the inequality we get,
$375t25
25t375
t37525
t15
Therefore the wood worker should complete the work in 15 hours or less to get at least $25 per hour.
