a 500+.04x The 500 is what they always get no matter what and the .04 is the amount they get for each sale which is represented by x b 720=500+.04x Then you let your equation equal the amount you want to make and solve for x by subtracting 500 and dividng by .04
does that help?

Other answers:

but for b dont i have to find out exactly how many sales that were made
that is why you are solving for x
you go 720=500+.04x
oh ok and u isolate x right
then 220=.04x
then divide 220 by .04
yep
220/.04=5550
so she would have to sell 5550 items to make 720 dollars right
yep
yayy!! thank you :)
