1. evidently you have not spent the intervening time studying the problems.

#1
A flat rate is just that: a constant amount, say \$25

A commission is a certain amount, say \$50 for every sale. So, for x sales, he would earn 50x

so, his total earnings are 25 + 50x

#3 is just like #1

#2 is the same, but the flat amount is the starting fuel load, and for each mile, a bit is subtracted. Let's say the full tank holds 20 gallons, and the machine gets 15 mpg. That is, each mile uses 1/15 gallon of gas. So, after x miles, you might have

20 - x/15
