Homework Help: algebra

Posted by Catina on Tuesday, October 14, 2008 at 11:23pm.

The Berry's sold their house after paying the real estate agent a commission of 6% of the selling price and then paying $1,486 in other costs and $90,000 on the mortgage, they received $49,514. What was the selling price of the house?

Solution:

selling price-cost=profit
Let s = selling price
cost= 0.06s + 1486 + 90,000

s - (0.06s + 1,486 + 90,000)= 49,514
s -0.06s - 1,486 - 90,000= 49,514
s-0.06s-1486= 49,514 +90,000
s-0.06s-1486=139,514
s-0,06s=139,514 + 1486
s-0.06=141,000 .....then I do not know what to do can someone help me please?
