Casandra Jones has a job offer in which she will receive $600 per month plus a commission of 2.5% of the total price of the cars she sells. At her current job, she receives $1000 per month plus a commission of 1.7% of her total sales.

What is the total price of the cars that Ms. Jones must sell each month to make the same income from either dealership?

How much must Ms. Jones sell to make a new job a better deal?


I'm kinda confused for this whole general problem. If someone can solve this, I would also like some other examples so I can get a better understanding. Thanks :)
