A local salesman receives a base salary of $700 monthly. If his total sales receipts for the month exceed $1900, he also receives a commission of 9% on the portion of sales over $1900. How much would he have to sell in a month if he wants to have a monthly income of $2800?

Given
Base salary of a salesman =$700 monthly
He receives a commission of 9% on the portion of sales over $1900.
Let the total sales =x
Commission =9% of (x1900)
His monthly income if his total sales receipt exceeds $1900 is given by
700+(x1900)9%
If he wants his monthly income $2800 then
700+(x1900)9%=2800
700+(x1900)9100=2800
70000+(x1900)9100=2800
7000+(x1900)9=280000
7000+9x17100=280000
9x=280000+1710070000
9x=227100
x=2271009
x=25233.33
Answer: 25233.33

2000=700+(6100)(S1950)
1300=(6100)(S1950)
S1950=1300006
S=1950+1300006
S=1950+21666.67
S=23616.67

let the total sales be x he gets 11% on sales above 1150 commission = 11%(x-1150) 1900= 700+11%(x-1150) 1900 = 700 +11%x-11 * 11.50 1200 +126.50 =11%x 1426.50=11%x 142650 =11x x=12968
