Hank sells furniture and earns $280/week plus 4% commission.
a) Determine the sales that Hank needs to make to meet his weekly
budget requirement of $900.
b) Write an equation for this situation, and use it to verify your
answer for part.

Let x represent earnings and y represent sales.. So would the equation be y= 280 + 0.04x .. if I'm wrong please correct me I'm not sure about this equation.

  1. x = 280 + .04y

    Your equation looks better, but it does not meet the explanation of x and y. Maybe there's a typo.

  2. y=280+0.04x

    900 = 280+0.04x
    900-280 = 0.04x
    620/0.04 = 0.04x/0.04
    15500 = x
