    $105,000 - 40,000 = $65,000 This is the total sales minus the first commission scale. The $65,000 is subject to the second commission scale since it falls between above $40,000 to $80,000. Therefore, the commission is calculated as follows: ($40,000)(0.06) + ($65,000)(0.07) = $2400 + $4550 = $6950 commission
