how do I do this? Biting-Dust Jewelry Company pays its salespeople on a commission basis. The salespeople receive \$250.00 per week plus 7% of their gross sales, if the gross sales exceeds \$5000.00 for that week, and \$200.00 per week plus 5% of their gross sales, if the gross sales does not exceed \$5000.00. For example, a salesperson who sells \$5000.00 worth of jewelry in a week receives a total of \$450.00 as salary, and a salesperson who sells \$10000.00 worth of jewelry in a week receives a total of \$950.00 as salary.

(as a math equation) for a salary equation without using percent

If gross sales > \$5000....the equation is

\$250  +  .07*S      where S is the gross sales

If gross sales < \$5000....the equation is

\$200  +  .05*S      where S is the gross sales
