I am stuck. I've gone through all my notes to try and figure out how to do this problem, with no success. Any help would be appriciated. Thank you!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An insurance salesperson earns an annual salary of $12,000 plus a commission equal to 3% of the premiums on all policies sold. If f(x) is a function which gives her annual earnings, what is the slope of f(x)? What is the y-intercept? Find the equation for f(x).

The equation I came up with was:

12000+.03X

This is as far as I have gotten.
