## MauriceLong 3 years ago Can someone help me with this please. Thanks A salesperson's rate of commission is 5%. What is the commission from the sale of \$43,000 worth of furnances

1. gjhfdfg

.05 X 43,000

2. MauriceLong

=21,500

3. gjhfdfg

Take another zero off it

4. MauriceLong

2,150

5. MauriceLong

gjhfdfg can tyou help me another problem please

6. gjhfdfg

That should be the answer, was that one of the answer choices.? I can't remember if it needs a decimal or not. & yes

7. MauriceLong

it wanted too know what the sales commission is?

8. gjhfdfg

Its \$2,150 then.

9. MauriceLong

|dw:1349661203106:dw|

10. MauriceLong

THATS WHAT I HAD WAS 2,150 FOR COMMISSION

11. gjhfdfg

\$18.90 X .25 = ?

12. MauriceLong

4.725 HOW WOULD I CHANGE THAT TOO NEAREST CENTS, WILL THAT BE 4.73 OR 4.72

13. gjhfdfg

It would be \$4.73. anything 5 or above rounds it upwards. So \$4.73 is your discount

14. MauriceLong

OH OK

15. MauriceLong

How do i get the sales price 18.90- 4.73

16. gjhfdfg

Now if you subtract \$18.90 - \$4.73 that will equal your sale price

17. gjhfdfg

Yes

18. MauriceLong

14.17 do i round that off or not

19. gjhfdfg

Nope not unless it says too

20. MauriceLong

its says simplify your answers, type whole numbers or decimals rounded too the nearest cent as nedded

21. MauriceLong

so 14.17 would be 14.27

22. MauriceLong

14.20

23. gjhfdfg

Then I guess your discount price would \$4.70 & sales price \$14.20

24. gjhfdfg

would be *

25. MauriceLong

oh ok. can u help me with one more problem please

26. MauriceLong

The price per share of US TOYS stock fell from \$37.72 to \$28.77. Find the percent of decrease in price. Round too the nearest tenth as needed

27. gjhfdfg

Sure

28. MauriceLong

did you get the problem

29. gjhfdfg

No

30. MauriceLong

The price per share of US TOYS stock fell from \$37.72 to \$28.77. Find the percent of decrease in price. Round too the nearest tenth as needed

31. MauriceLong

will i subtract and round off too nearest tenth

32. gjhfdfg

\$37.72 - \$28.77 = ?

33. gjhfdfg

No theres more steps after that

34. MauriceLong

i got 8.97

35. gjhfdfg

Hold on,

36. MauriceLong

ok

37. gjhfdfg

I got 8.95

38. gjhfdfg

Are you doing this by hand or calc.?

39. MauriceLong

im doing this by hand and calculator lol

40. gjhfdfg

Haha, oh okay. Well by hand & calc I got 8.95

41. MauriceLong

thats what i got so now do i have too round the 95 off too nearest tenth

42. MauriceLong

is it 9.00 even

43. gjhfdfg

No, now yu divide the decrease price by the old price

44. MauriceLong

ok i m lost lol

45. gjhfdfg

So \$8.95 / \$37.72 = ?

46. MauriceLong

you mean 37.72 divide by 8.95

47. gjhfdfg

No.

48. MauriceLong

i got 0.237274 etccccc

49. gjhfdfg

Yu divide 8.95 by \$37.72 & then multiply your answer by 100% (just 100) & round it then yu get yur answer

50. gjhfdfg

& I got the same, now multiply it by 100

51. MauriceLong

i got 23

52. gjhfdfg

Yu should get 23.72747

53. MauriceLong

you cant round 23 off too nearest 10th

54. MauriceLong

no i didint get 23.72747

55. gjhfdfg

Yes you can. its \$23.70. Is that one of yur answer choices.?

56. MauriceLong

i have no answer choices at all.

57. gjhfdfg

Hmm, then Idk how yu got just 23 alone.?

58. MauriceLong

im doing a quiz

59. gjhfdfg

It isn't a multiple choice.?

60. MauriceLong

Nope

61. MauriceLong

62. gjhfdfg

Yeah, but I'd say 24% if they want it rounded

63. gjhfdfg

If yu multiplied 0.2372747 X 100 yu should of gotten what I got

64. MauriceLong

|dw:1349662971636:dw|

65. MauriceLong

CAN U HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM

66. gjhfdfg

I = P r T

67. MauriceLong

TYPE A WHOLE NUMBER OR DECIMAL ROUNDED TOO THE NEAREST DOLLAR

68. MauriceLong

600 X 0.8 X 6/12

69. gjhfdfg

Interest = principle x rate x time sooo,

70. MauriceLong

SO DO I MULTIPLY 0.8 X 6/12

71. gjhfdfg

Yu would multiply it by .08

72. MauriceLong

600 X .08 X 6/12 IS THAT THE CORRECT WAY

73. gjhfdfg

Yes

74. MauriceLong

HOW WOULD I MULTIPLY 6/12

75. gjhfdfg

Yu divide 6 by 12

76. gjhfdfg

Yu should get 0.5

77. MauriceLong

600 X .08 X 0.5= 24

78. gjhfdfg

Yup

79. gjhfdfg

Is that all.?

80. MauriceLong

I HAVE 2 MORE PROBLEMS TOO GO

81. MauriceLong

FIND THE TOTAL AMOUNT DUE ON THE LOAN USING SIMPLE INTEREST PRINCIPLE IS \$200 RATE IS 7% TIME IS 3 MONTHS ROUND TOO NEAREST CENT AS NEEDED

82. MauriceLong

I GOT 4.00 IS THAT CORRECT

83. gjhfdfg

P = I / rt so,

84. gjhfdfg

Simple interest principle formula is not the same the simple interest rate

85. MauriceLong

OK

86. gjhfdfg

Wait, hold on

87. gjhfdfg

Yu might have to use the formula we used on the last one, can you copy & paste yur question how they written it.?

88. MauriceLong

200= 7%/3MONTHS=0.28

89. MauriceLong

I cant copy and paste it. it would not let me do that.

90. MauriceLong

I can draw it out on here for you

91. gjhfdfg

That would be easier. I don't want to give yu the wrong formula

92. gjhfdfg

Using the I = P r T formula I got 3.5

93. MauriceLong

THATS WHAT I GOT 3.5 THEN I ROUND IT OFF TOO NEAREST CENT TOO 4.0

94. gjhfdfg

That would be rounding it off to the nearest dollar. Since they said rounding it off to the nearest cent it would just be \$3.50

95. MauriceLong

|dw:1349664109831:dw|

96. MauriceLong

OH OK

97. MauriceLong

THATS HOW THE FORMULA WAS..

98. gjhfdfg

The answer should be \$3.50 then

99. MauriceLong

LAST PROBLEM IM GOING TOO DRAW IT OUT TOO YOU

100. MauriceLong

K

101. MauriceLong

|dw:1349664358805:dw|

102. MauriceLong

GPA= Round too the nearest hundreths as needed

103. MauriceLong

did you get problem

104. gjhfdfg

I got it

105. MauriceLong

i got 2.59

106. gjhfdfg

I'm not so should what yur suppose to do with the credits, but I know yu plug in the numbers at the top with the letters on the right

107. gjhfdfg

I'm not so sure **

108. MauriceLong

first i got 2.588 then i round it off too 2.59

109. MauriceLong

i think this is the MODE, LIKE MEAN MEDIAN MODE

110. MauriceLong

CREDITS TIMES GRADES= THEN U ADD THEM ALL UP AND DIVIDE IT TOO GET GRADE POINT AVERAGE

111. gjhfdfg

I'm not 100% positive on how to solve these, I added them all up & got 30 then divided it by 10 & got 3. I'd make a new board to see if anyone knows how to solve this bc I really don't know.

112. MauriceLong

I WENT ON AHEAD FIGURED IT OUT.. i GOT A 58% ON THIS TEST

113. gjhfdfg

What did yu miss.?

114. MauriceLong

I MISSED ALOT.. CANT RETAKE THE QUIZ UNTIL TOMORROW

115. gjhfdfg

If yu had to enter yur answer in yurself then wait til yur teacher looks at it
