  1. I answered this question previously. However, here it is again.

    $500 + .04x = $400 + .05x

    x will give you the amount she has to sell to get the same income.

    The better offer depends on how good a salesperson she is, how much she expects to sell.

    I hope this helps again. Thanks for asking.
