A salesperson works 40 hours per week at a job where he has two options for being paid. Option A is an hourly wage of ​$21. Option B is a commission rate of 4​% on weekly sales. How much does he need to sell this week to earn the same amount with the two​ options


to find the amount earned by working (a) hours at (b) wage per hour, simply multiply ab for option A, the hourly wage is #21/hr and the # of hours is 40 for option B, he earns a 4% comission on sales, so simply represent the sales as x, and the total wage as 0.04*x set option A and oiption B equal to each other and solve for x
