    Answer:

    Renee would have to sell 750 food processors for both companies to pay her the same amount. Also, if Renee expects to sell less than 750 food processors she should accept Puree Processors offer but if she expects to sell more than 750 food processors, she should accept Pro Process Processors offer.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In order to determine the number of food processors Renee would have to sell for both companies to pay her the same amount, you can write an expression in which the salary at  Pro Process Processors is equal to the salary at Puree Processors, which can be expressed as:

    15,000+25x=18,000+21x

    Now, you can solve for x that represents the number of food processors:

    15,000+25x=18,000+21x

    25x-21x=18,000-15,000

    4x=3,000

    x=3,000/4

    x=750

    According to this, Renee would have to sell 750 food processors for both companies to pay her the same amount. Also, if Renee expects to sell less than 750 food processors she should accept Puree Processors offer but if she expects to sell more than 750 food processors, she should accept Pro Process Processors offer.
