If Sandy usually earns \$88 plus 11% sales each week. What if she earns \$154 one week. What is the % sales she earned that week when she earned \$154?

• Math -

Yes. That's correct.

• Math -

Would you know how to get the answer 600 because I solved it differently and did not get 600

• Math -

Here's what I did.

154 - 88 = 66

0.11x = 66
x = 600

• Math -

I thought I had cross multiply.
88/154 = .11/x

• Math -

Your fractions for the proportion are not equivalent.

Do you understand what I did?

• Math -

yes
