    The problem statement tells us …

    … paycheck = 4000 + 0.09×sales

    and that the paycheck amount is 11650. Substituting that into the above equation and solving for sales, we have …

    … 11650 = 4000 + 0.09×sales

    … 7650 = 0.09×sales . . . . . . . . . . subract 4000

    … 7650/0.09 = sales = 85000 . . . divide by 0.09

    John’s sales during that month were $85,000.
