hmm.. Start by writing an equation. You have a base salary of 14,000. You need to add 14,000 AND 7% (0.07) of an unknown Sales (S). What must S be greater than?

To clarify, set this equal to the desired earning (49,000)

total income = base income + commission income, where commission income is 0.07S. Reread the whole problem statement and then see what you can do towards completiing this equation algebraically.
