Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.112%=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!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1100+0.12 x 800 is the same as 100 + 96 I was simplifying part of the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For Saturday, yep! Then you just need to do Sunday, and then add the money she made Saturday to the money she made Sunday.
