    a) Veronica earns $276. Francis earns $216

    b) $6000

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Veronica's income would be I = 0.035s + 150 where I is income and s is sales while Francis's income would be 0.06s. So for $3600 in sales Veronica earns $276 while Francis earns $216. To find the answer to part b just set the two equations equal to each other and solve for x. so 0.035x + 150 = 0.06x Subtracting 0.035 x from both sides gives 150 = 0.025x. Dividing both sides by 0.025 gives x = $6000
