    Help for a simple problem.

    A salesman has a monthly fixed income of 1700.00 $, plus $25.00 for each electronic unit he sells.

    Question: Find the total monthly income for the sale of x units.

    Let x equal the total monthly income for the sale of x units
    Fixed cost is 1700
    variable cost would be 25x

    I'm mississing some sort of logic here and i just cant figure it out... I see it as T(x) = 25x + 1700.

    Any help would be greatly appreaciated! thanks.

    Hi irena,


    Your logic is correct. Your total monthly income function is correct.
