What is the percentage that she earns from her sales? Looks like it got left out of the problem.

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!

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.
