At a certain real estate firm,realtors selling homes receive a commission of 7% for the first 140,000 of the selling price, and 5% for any amount exceeding 140,000. A realtor for the firm received 11,350 for selling a house. What was its selling price? I really do not understand this question can someone please help me?

1. \$140,000(.05) + X(.07) = \$11,350

Solve for X and add solution to \$140,000.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
