M(x)=7.25+1.25x

I need to find the solution for the systems by either using substitution or combination/elimination

**Damon**, Saturday, October 22, 2011 at 8:30pmYou mean where is the breakeven point where the two jobs pay equally?

let W = M and substitute

11 + .5 x = 7.25 + 1.25 x

3.75 = .75 x

x = 5 units

the M = W = 11 + 2.5 = $13.5
