Q:
# Consuela earns a salary of $40,000 per year plus a commission of $1,00 for each car she sells. Write and solve an equation that shows the number of cars Consuela must sell in order to make $60,000 in one year.

Accepted Solution

A:

60000=40000+100x

20000=100x

x=200

Im thinking her commission should be 1000, not 100, and if so, your equation would be

60000=40000+1000

20000=1000x

x=20

20000=100x

x=200

Im thinking her commission should be 1000, not 100, and if so, your equation would be

60000=40000+1000

20000=1000x

x=20
