600 + 0.01(x - 2,000) = 650;

x - 2,000 = 5,000

x = 7,000.

Answer: D.

A. $620
B. $2,050
C. $3,000
D. $7,000
E. $22,000


We can create the following equation in which n = amount of sales:

650 = 600 + 0.01(n - 2000)

50 = 0.01n - 20

70 = 0.01n

7000 = n

Answer: D

OA: D
If Sales is less than or equal to $ 2000
Weekly salary =$600

If Sales is more than $ 2000
Weekly Salary \(= $600 +\frac{1}{100}(Sales-$2000)\)

In Question stem , Weekly Salary is given as $650 , (>$600)
\($ 650 = $600+ \frac{1}{100}(Sales-$2000)\)
\($50=\frac{1}{100}(Sales-$2000)\)
\((Sales-$2000)=$50 * 100\)
\(Sales = $5000 +$ 2000 =$ 7000\)
