Jovan is considering two job offers. Each company pays a fixed monthly salary plus a commission based on the amount of sales. The graph shows the income potential for each job.

Question 1.

Which company pays a greater monthly salary? Explain.

Answer:

Given that,

The monthly salary of company A is y = 500x + 4000.

The monthly salary of Company B is y = 250x + 5000.

Here 500x and 250 are the salaries of Company A and company B.

The 4000 and 5000 are the commission.

Company A has a greater salary.

Question 2.

Which company pays a greater commission? Explain.

Answer:

Given that,

The monthly salary of company A is y = 500x + 4000.

The monthly salary of Company B is y = 250x + 5000.

Here 500x and 250 are the salaries of Company A and company B.

The 4000 and 5000 are the commission.

Company B has the greater commission.

Question 3.

If Jovan plans to have monthly sales of $5000, which job pays more?

Answer:

Given that,

The monthly salary of company A is y = 500x + 4000.

The monthly salary of Company B is y = 250x + 5000.

Here x = number of sales.

The number of sales = 5000.

The monthly salary of company A is y = 500(5000) + 4000.

= 2,504,000

The monthly salary of Company B is y = 250(5000) + 5000.

= 1,255,00

Therefore company A jobs pay more.

Question 4.

For what value of monthly sales do the two companies pay the same total income?

Answer:

Given that,

The monthly salary of company A is y = 500x + 4000.

The monthly salary of Company B is y = 250x + 5000.

If the company A has the number of sales x = 5 then

The monthly salary of company A is y = 500(5) + 4000.

= 6500.

If the company A has the number of sales x = 6 then

The monthly salary of Company B is y = 250(6) + 5000.

= 6500.

For company A the x value is 5 and For company B the x value is 6 For these values both companies have the same monthly income.

**Spiral Review**

Question 8.

Can you conclude from the figure that ∆ABC is similar to ∆DEF? Explain.

Answer:

Some of the angles in the triangle = 180 degrees

In triangle ABC.

angle A + angle B + angel C = 180 degrees.

60 degrees + 40 degrees + angle C = 180 degrees

100 degrees + angle C = 180 degrees.

Angle C = 180 – 100 = 80 degrees.

In triangle DEF

angle D + angle E + angel F = 180 degrees.

60 degrees + 40 degrees + angle D = 180 degrees

100 degrees + angle D = 180 degrees.

Angle D = 180 – 100 = 80 degrees.

Therefore that ∆ABC is similar to ∆DEF.

Question 9.

In the figure, ∠Q is congruent to ∠T, and ∠R is congruent to ∠U. What are the measures of ∠P and ∠S?

Answer:

2x + 10 = 3x – 40

x = 50

So, the measures of ∠P and ∠S = 50°

**For Problems 10-11, tell whether each equation has no solution or infinitely many solutions.**

Question 10.

3(x+ 2) = x + 2x + 2

Answer:

Given that,

3(x+ 2) = x + 2x + 2

3x + 6 = x + 2x + 2

3x + 6 = 3x + 2

Subtract 6 from both sides

3x + 6 – 6 = 3x + 2 – 6

3x = 3x -4

Subtract 3x from both sides

3x – 3x = 3x -4 – 3x

0 = -4

Therefore the equation has no solution.

Question 11.

1.5y + y + 10 = 2.5(y + 4)

Answer:

Given that,

1.5y + y + 10 = 2.5(y + 4)

2.5y + 10 = 2.5y + 10

Subtract 10 from both sides

2.5y + 10 – 10 = 2.5y + 10 – 10

2.5y = 2.5y

Subtract 2.5y on both sides

2.5y – 2.5y = 2.5y – 2.5y

0=0

Therefore the equation has no solution.
