The real estate agent wanted a 4% commission and I suspected that he knew the house would sell for \$800,000 and he would walk awa with \$2,000 I decided that this was not in m best interest. I decided that it was onl worth m while if the house could sell for a minimum of \$825,000. I proposed an alternative to his 4% commission: \$25,000 plus 5% of an amount over m minimum of \$825,000. He did not like the offer a) Suppose the house sold for \$825,000 b m plan he would get \$25,000 in commission what would his 4% plan get him? b) Suppose the house sold for \$875,000 what would his 4% plan get him in commission? What would m plan get him in commission? c) Clearl m plan earns him a higher commission if the selling price is high enough. High enough is the critical issue here what selling price makes m plan beneficial? d) Wh did this agent not like m offer? Hint: He is the buer s agent, not mine as the seller. 8) Graph each of the following inequalities in the plane.
