Tara works in a clothing store where she earns a base salary of $100 per day plus 12 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?

- anonymous

ok ill try that

- anonymous

i got 2852 0.0

- anonymous

476

- anonymous

i got 1097.6

- anonymous

if its wrong i probably sound really stupid

- anonymous

wait why am i adding

- anonymous

those 2 numbers

- anonymous

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!

- anonymous

where does 96 come from

- anonymous

can anyone answer where 96 comes from

- anonymous

I have no idea

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

800 times 0.12 is 96

- anonymous

y did u put another equal sign and added 100 plus 96

- anonymous

100+0.12 x 800 is the same as 100 + 96
I was simplifying part of the equation.

- anonymous

ok thank you for clearing that up

- anonymous

No problem.
Is it clear now?

- anonymous

yes so M=196

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

oh ok thank you ill do that n tell u what i get

- anonymous

Ok! :)

- anonymous

he got 280 for Sunday and Sundays pay + Saturdays pay='s 476

- anonymous

Exactly! :)

- anonymous

- anonymous
