Exercise160

You are offered two different sales jobs. The first company offers a straight commission of \(3\%\) of the sales. The second company offers a salary of \(\$460\) per week plus \(2\%\) of the sales. How much would you have to sell in a week in order for the straight commission offer to be at least as good?

You’d have to sell more than worth of goods for the straight commission to be better for you. In other words, the dollar amount of goods sold would have to be in the interval (answer using interval notation).
