Guy and Jim work at a furniture store. Guy is paid \( \$ 185 \) per week plus \( 3 \% \) of his total sales in dollars, \( x \) , which can be represented by \( g ( x ) = 185 + 0.03 x \) . Jim is paid \( \$ 275 \) 

per week plus \( 2.5 \% \) of his total sales in dollars, \( x \) , which can be represented by 

\( f ( x ) = 275 + 0.025 x \) . Determine the value of \( x \) , in dollars, that will make their weekly pay the same. 

Answer

185+0.03x=275+0.025x
