Question #00ba1

1 Answer

Answer:

#$4600 #

Explanation:

Let #x# be the amount you have to sell.

#0.07 = 7% #

# x xx (0.07) # is the amount earned on the straight commission.

#0.02 = 2%#

# 230 + x xx (0.02) # is the amount earned on the salary plus a 2 % commission.

Set these two amounts equal to each other.

# x xx 0.07 = 230 + x xx 0.02#

#0.07x = 230 + 0.02x" "# Subtract #0.02x # from both sides

#0.07 x - 0.02 x = 230 + 0.02x - 0.02 x#

This gives #0.05 x = 230" "# Divide both sides by #0.05#

This gives #x = $4,600 #
