danielle earns a 7.25% commission on everything she sells at the electronics store where she works. she also earns a base salary of $625 per week. how much did she earn last week if she sold $4,800 in electronics merchandise? round your intermediate calculations and answer to the nearest cent.
$5,773. (I would really appreciate a brainliest!)
Danielle earned $951.25
Multiply her commission by her sales and add her base rate
x=7.25%($4500)+625 or x=0.0725(4500)+625
She earned 1,076 dollars and 25 cents.
x = 7.25 * 4,500 / 100
x = 7.25 * 45
x = 326.25
So commission earned is 326.25 $
We need to add this to her base salary for the week, so:
750 + 326.25 = 1, 076.25
Therefore she earned 1,076 dollars and 25 cents.
Hopes this helps ;p
