You got the last one...follow the same principles...you'll get this one too!
Close...but remember that one percent = 1/100. Since Michelle gets 9%, it is 9/100 which is .09. I believe you calculated with .90, which would be 90%. :)

So, the answer you're looking for is $887.40, which you may notice is $8874./10.
In a problem like this, you may want to get a rough guess of the answer. Since you know that 9% is fairly close to 10%, you know that your answer will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 10%. This is handy because 10% just means you move the decimal one point to the left. This would estimate your sales commission to $986. It would be logical to guess that your original calculation of $8,874 would be a bit high, since we expect to find something closer to $986.
If that is confusing, just forget I said anything and remember that n% = n/100.
