    Solving Systems of Equations Word Problems

    You are offered two different jobs selling college textbooks. One company offers an annual salary of $20000 plus a year-end bonus of 1% of your total sales. The other company offers an annual salary of $15000 plus a year-end bonus of 2% of your total sales. Determine the annual sales required to make the second offer better. I need a coordinate
