The correct answer is A    if you solve this equation for 's' you will get the answer to the second part of the question

Well the first question is simple! find the equation that could equal 1021 dollars, note in A at the end of 13.25 there is an s, this s is an unknown number that 13.25 will be multiplied by. so if we subtract 650 from 1021 we will find how much more we need. 1021-650= 371. so divide 650 by 13.25 and you will find S

P.s, S is the number of sales she needs to make! and if you get a decimal, just round to the nearest number cheeky
