163 visted the shop

## To find out how many people visited Margo's Florist shop last year, we need to consider that 1 out of every 15 people placed an order for roses. We also know that there were no more than 200 orders for roses.

Let's assume the total number of people who visited the shop last year is represented by 'x'. Since 1 out of every 15 people placed an order for roses, we can calculate the number of people who placed an order by dividing 'x' by 15:

Number of people who placed an order for roses = x / 15

We also know that the number of people who placed an order for roses was no more than 200. So, we can set up an inequality:

x / 15 ≤ 200

To find the maximum value of 'x', we can multiply both sides of the inequality by 15:

x ≤ 200 * 15
x ≤ 3000

Therefore, the maximum number of people who visited Margo's Florist shop last year is 3000. However, you mentioned that there were no more than 200 orders for roses, so the actual number of people who visited the shop is likely lower. Since the question states that 163 people visited the shop, that would be the most accurate answer based on the information given.
