I posted this question earlier:

a.) Maddie works at a desighner store. She earns $1925 per month plus 10% commission of her sales. Write an equation to show how much she makes

b.) one month she earned $2725. Use your equation to show what her sales were that month

Please help, thanks :)

she makes=1925+Sales( .10)

2725=1925+Sales(.10)

sales(.10)=800

sales=800/.1=8000

so the equation would be : 1925x + .10

??
