I have no idea how to write an inequality for this. It would help if you could give me the inequality for this and walk me through it a little.

Thank you!

**Reiny**, Saturday, January 24, 2009 at 12:14pmlet s be the amount of sales in $

Pay(planA) = 400 + .08s

Pay(planB) = 640 + .05s

This question is very similar to the one you just posted.

Solve the two right sides of the above equations.

That will tell you for what amount of sales the pay would be the same.

So above that value, one of the plans would be better, for below that value it would be the other.

I will let you decide which would be the better.
