A person applying for a sales position is offered an alternative salery plan.
Plan A A base salery of $600 per month plus a commission of 4% of the gross value for the month
Plan B A base salery of $700 per month plus a commission of 6% of the gross sales of the month in excess of $10,000.
A) For each plan, formulate a function (an equation) that expresses monthly earings as a function of gross sales (x)
B) For what gross sales value is Plan B preferable?
One notation for monthly earnings is
A = $600 + .04X
While the other is
B = $700 + .06(X  $10,000).
The breaking point for gross sales would be where the two salaries are equal. You should be able to answer the remaining question with this information.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
