this one says. Each week, Sally, a sales person and Eddie's Electoral Electronic Emporium, receives a base pay of three hundred dollars, plus a commission on the dollar amount of her sails during any weak when the total value of her sails is five thousand dollars or less. Her commission is ten percent. During those weeks, when the total value of her sails exceeds five thousand dollars, her commission is twelve percent of entire MT. Last year. During the first week of February, she earned one thousand and eighty dollars. What was the total value of her sails that week? Okay, so for this one, we have a couple different situations on. The first situation is if it's under five thousand dollars worth of sales, and second one is over five thousand dollars for the sales. So we know that it's going to be ten percent of the amount X plus three hundred dollars if it's under five thousand, which means that the maximum that she could have would be if it was the maximum amount of money which is five thousand dollars of sales s. So then if we do that, ten percent express as a decimal is point one times the five thousand plus the three hundred should be the maximum amount of money that she could earn if she made under five thousand dollars worth of sales. So then five thousand times point one is five hundred and then plus the base pair three hundred, she give us eight hundred dollars, but we know that she actually made more than that. She made one thousand eighty dollars, which means that she made over, Ah, five thousand dollars with their sales. So then let's go in and try to calculate that we know that based off of the kind of a similar equation here, but with a different percentage, we know that her total munt of earnings is going to be the percentage which this time is gonna be twelve percent Time's thie value over sales X plus the base pay the same three hundred. So then, in order to isolate for our value X, we can subtract three hundred on both sides and then we should get seven hundred and eighty is equal to twelve percent, which is point one two times x. So then, lastly, in order to isolate X, we're just gonna divide both sides by point one two, and so X should equal seven eighty by that point, one to which becomes six thousand and five hundred dollars. So our answer that's going to be
