Code:
2) 13.3

2. C

20 is the Ans

M = 3*N - 10

M = 50

N = 20

Rite?

1. C
2. C
3. D

for question 1, pick numbers
N=9, T=4, then S=2 and V=1

you will see very quickly that 9=4*2+1, therefore N=ST+V

for question 2
I used formula M=3N-10

50=3N-10, solve for N

Question 3

since we know the total commission of the first 100 machines is \$300*100=30,000, divide (36,000-30,000) by 400 (commission for machines sold after the first 100)=15, therefore answer is 100+15=115

hope this helps

1: Just write it out. Try it on a fraction such as 15/10. Ul see what I mean. T(S+V)=N. D

2: M=3N-10 --> N=20 when M =50. C

3: This one gave me a bit of trouble at first. but we can write it as such:

.04(x-100)10000=6000 b/c we know the first 100 are equal to 30000\$.

Thus X is our total and thru calculations we get x=115.

Step 1: Write out the equation:

(N-V) / T = S

Now just solve for N: TS = N-V ---> TS + V = N

ANS: C ST + V
