Samantha Jones has a job offer in which she will receive #600 per month plus a commission of 2% of the total price of the cars she sells. At her current job, she receives \$1000 per month plus a commission of 1.5% of her total sales.
a. What is the total price of the cars that Ms. Jones must sell each month to make the same income from either dealership? Explain.
b. How much must Ms. Jones sell to make the new job a better deal? Show all work.

• Algebra 1 -

current pay: 1000 + .015s
new job pays: 600 + 0.2s

what value of s makes them equal?

600 + .2s = 1000 + .015s
.005s = 400
s = 80,000

any sales past that makes the new job a better deal, since she gets more per sale.
