Dak got a job selling glow sticks at the local art festival. He is paid a fixed amount of $440 per week plus $0.77 per item sold. This is represented by the equation P = 0.77 n + 440 where P is the amount he is paid for the week and n is the number of glow sticks he sold. How much will Dak be paid if he sells 350 glow sticks?
If Dak sells 350 glow sticks, he will earn $ for the week. How many glow sticks did Dak sell if he earned $1,032.90? If Dak has earned $1,032.90, he sold glow sticks.
P = 0.77 n + 440
Just sub 350 for n in your equation
P=0.77 * 350 + 440
P = 269.50 + 440
P = $709.50 - what he earned in that week
P = 0.77n + 440
1,032.90 = 0.77 n + 440
1032.90 - 440 = 0.77n
592.90 = 0.77n
n = 592.90 / 0.77
n = 770 - glow sticks he sold when he earned $1,032.90
