Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

# of Books Sold in 1st Month: 37,700

This value is equivalent to 6.6% of the number of books sold to date. Convert the 6.6% to decimal: 0.066

To get the number of books sold to date (X), you can write the formula: X*0.066=37,700

Solve for X: X=37,700/.066

X=571,212.12 --> Rounded to the nearest whole number: X=571,213 Books sold to date
