    First job: pay = 0.02x + 600 Second job: pay = 0.01x +1000 Where x represents the amount of her sales... to see when her pay is the same set the equations equal to each other. 0.02x + 600 = 0.01x + 1000 Solve. 0.01x = 400 x= 40 000 She would need have $40,000 in sales for her pay to be the same.
