    Angry Ratio and Its Application

    Q. A salesman's terms were changed from a flat commission of 5% on all his sales to a fixed salary of $1000 plus 2.5% commission on all sales exceeding $4000. If his remuneration as per the new scheme was $600 more than the first scheme, what were his sales worth?

    This is a very tricky question....I can't just form the statements.
    I don't even know what the constants are in this problem.

    Thanks

    let S = sales amount

    1000 + 0.025(S-4000) = 600 + 0.05S
