    \[(6x/100)+90>(3x/100)+180\] \[3x/100>90\] \[3x >9000\] x>3000 3001 will make company A better of the two

    above 3000$ first you have to notice the point at which the incomes from both sources become equal that is .. say sale is x$ at company A he will recieve 90 + 6% of x ---- eq (i) at company B he receives 180 + 3% of x ------eq(ii) equating eq(i) and eq(ii) x = 3000 hence above x=3000 he will have( 6% - 3% = 3%) of sales commision extra if he works with company A
