Given that percent can be expressed in decimal form (example: 25% of a value y can be written as 0.25y) answer the following:

Tom uses the linear model of y = 35,000 + 0.45x to anticipate his salary from completing x amount of dollars' worth of jobs.

What is Tom's base salary? What percent commission does he earn? Would you be able to use the same equation for Tom the next year? Why or why not?

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

Toms base salary is 35000

percent of commission he earns is 45%

We cant use the equation next year because the salary and the commission are not constant they may change thus changing the whole equation

Unless if the commission and the salary are constant
