    I used the equation 250 = 1.25 + 20x and subtracted 1.25 from 250, then divided by .2 and got $1243.75

    Answer:  $51.05

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given : The magazine company will pay you $1.25 for selling the first subscription.

    For each additional subscription​ sold, the magazine company will pay you 20 cents more than what was paid for the previous subscription.

    Since 1 dollar =100 cents

    Then, 20 cents =\dfrac{20}{100}=\$0.2

    Let x be the number of additional subscription​ sold after the first one.

    Then, the total earning after selling x additional subscription will be :_

    y=1.25+0.2x

    If we sell 250 magazine​ subscriptions, the additional subscriptions= 250-1=249

    Put x= 249 in the above equation , we get

    y=1.25+0.2(249)=51.05

    Hence, the you will earn $51.05 by selling 250 magazine​ subscriptions.
