Answer: Equation for total cost: T = $25 + 0.04E

Cost of a client who earns $1500 = $85

Step-by-step explanation:

Let E = earning in the first month

Commission (c) = 0.04 (4%) × E

Total cost will be the addition of $25 fixed amount and commission

Therefore, an equation that will represent total cost of finding a job through the hotline will be:

T = $25 + 0.04E

The cost of a client whose first month earnings is $1500 will be

T = $25 + 0.04 ($1500)

T = $25 + $60 = $85
