Antony works at a local clothing store. He can earn either $600 per month plus a 5%
commission or $450 per month and a 7% commission. Write and solve a system of equations
that you could use to determine the amount of merchandise that Antony would need to sell in
order to earn the same amount of money for each pay scale.
Let 'x' represent the amount of merchandise sold.
600 + 0.05x = 450 + 0.07x
