    400 - 175 = 225

    0.15x = 225

    x = 225/0.15

    x = 1500

    job1 = 400
    job2 = 175 + .15s , where s is sales

    when are they equal?
    175 + .15s = 400
    .15s = 225
    s = 225/.15 = 1500

    notice the solution to the equation contains all the calculations that Ms Sue has also given you.
