A car salesman earns a base salary of $1,000 per month plus a commission of $200 for each car he sells. If he earned $2,200 in February, how many cars does he have to sell in March in order to double his February earnings?

(A) 6

(B) 11

(C) 12

(D) 17

(E) 22

Commission = Fixed Commission + Variable commission

4400 = 1000 + 200 ( No of units sold)

3400 = 200 ( No of units sold)

So, No of units sold = 17

Answer will be (D)
