    Step 1) Make the equation describing the situation:

    y = 0.045 x + 250

    Where x is the sales and y is his total earning.

    if,

    y = 500 (total earning)

    then,

    500 = 0.045 x + 250

    500 - 250 = 0.045 x

    250 = 0.045 x

    x = 250/0.045

    x = $5,555.55

    The total value of his sales should be $5,555 to earn a total of $500.
