Please check this question.
Jimmy is comparing two jobs he was offered.
Company 1 has offered him a payment package of $400 a month with an 8 percent commission rate on any sale he makes. Company 2 offered a graduated package commission of 5 percent on the first $4000 of sales and 9 percent commission on any sales above that. If he sells $12000 worth of merchandise in a month, which company will pay him the most money?
