How do I solve for FOUR possible answers to the following?

A fundraiser is selling two types of items: pizzas and cookie dough. The club earns $5 for each pizza sold and $4 for each container of cookie dough. They want to earn more than $550.
(The inequality is 5p +4c >550?)

You assumed that the number of pizza is P , and the number of cookie dough is C.
==> Th total price is 5P + 4C
But they need the total price to be more that 550.
==> 5p + 4c > 550
Now to find 4 possible answers, we will find random values for P and C that satisfies the inequality.
1. Let p = 50 ==> 5p = 5*50 = 250
Then 4c has to be more that 300 to satisfies the inequality.
==> Let c = 80 => 4c = 4*80 = 320 .
Now the total is 600 which satisfies the inequality.
==> p= 50 and c = 80 is one possible solution.
2. Let p= 60 ==> 5p = 5*60 = 300
let c = 70 ==> 5c = 4*70 = 280
==> Then, the total is 580 > 550
==> p= 60 and c =70 is another possible solution.
3. Let p = 70 ==> 5p = 5*70 = 350.
Let c = 60 ==> 4c = 4*60= 240
==> Total = 590.
4. Let p= 75 ==> 5p = 5*75 = 375
let c = 55 ==> 4c = 4*55= 220
==> Total = 595 > 550
