Write a system of equations to represent the situation.

**PsyDAG**, Monday, February 18, 2008 at 8:20pmWhy don't you let X stand for the amount she has to sell?

$500 + .04X = $400 + .05X

That would tell you how much she would have to sell each month to make them equivalent. If she expects to sell less, she would go for the large base pay. If she expects to sell more, she would want the smaller base pay and larger percentage.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
