Curt can be paid in one of two ways for the sales he generates:


Plan A: 900$ per month plus 10% sales commission.

Plan B: $1200 per month plus 15% commission on sales above $8,000.

Assuming he always exceeds $8,000 in sales, for what amount interval of $ sales is Plan B better?

  • College algebra -

    900 + .1 x = 1200 + .15(x - 8,000)
    is breakeven point. Above that take the 15%

  • College algebra -

    So I distribute the .15 and then solve for x?

  • College algebra -

    yes

  • College algebra -

    why did you put .1% instead of .10%?

  • College algebra -

    They are both the same.

  • College algebra -

    10% = 10/100 = .10 = .1
