Step-by-step explanation:

Let x represent the total sales made in a year.

Employees at Driscoll’s Electronics as a base salary plus a 20% Commission on their total sales for the year. If the base salary is \$40,000, it means that if the employee makes a total sales of \$x in a year, the total equation to represent earnings would be

0.2x + 40000

b) if Stewart wants to make \$65,000 this year, it means that

0.2x + 40000 = 65000

0.2x = 65000 – 40000

0.2x = 25000

x = 25000/0.2

x = 125000

c) 52,000 + 0.3s = 82,000

The base salary is \$52000

The percentage of commission from sales is 30%
