    Answer:

    0.05x

    This is equivalent to 5% of the total amount of sales.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Previous Weekly pay function for Owen; f (x) = 0.15x +325——————– (1)

    Current   Weekly pay function for Owen; g(x) = 0.20x +325——————–(2)

    Change in Owen’s Salary plan is equation (2) minus equation (1)

    g(x) – f(x) = (0.20x+325)-(0.15x+325)

                  =  0.05x

    The new change in Owen’s salary is 5% of the total amount of sales
