Laura is a salesperson in a retail store and earns $65 per week plus 10% of her weekly sales. If Laura earned $200 one week, what were her sales that week

  • math - ,

    200=65+.10x
    She earns a flat salary of 65 weekly no matter what. Her commission is 10% and is a reward for her to sell more. 200 is her total. x is what you want to know.

    Subtract 65 from both sides.

    135=.10x

    Divide both sides by .10

    x=$1350 in sales that week
