12%=0.12 The amount she earns on any given day can be expressed as\[M=100+0.12 \times S\]where S is the total price of sales for that day. Plugging in S for Saturday for example gives\[M=100+0.12 \times 800=100+96\]Can you do Sunday? After you get that, just add them together!

ok
anonymous

800 times 0.12 is 96
anonymous
  • anonymous
y did u put another equal sign and added 100 plus 96
anonymous
  • anonymous
100+0.12 x 800 is the same as 100 + 96 I was simplifying part of the equation.

For Saturday, yep! Then you just need to do Sunday, and then add the money she made Saturday to the money she made Sunday.
