Tara works in a clothing store where she earns a base salary of $100 per day plus percent of her daily sales. She sold $800 in clothing on Saturday and $1500 in clothing on Sunday. How much did she earn over the two days?

    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.
