## help123please. 2 years ago Veronica sells insurance for a living. She receives a commission of 25 percent on all her monthly sales. She makes 15 dollars an hour and works for 40 hours per week. if she sells 15000 dollars worth of insurance, in the month of March how much will she be paid?

@dumbsearch2

@saifoo.khan

So lets do what we know.

Salary : 15*40*25 = 3,000 Commission : $\frac{ 375 }{ 15000} = \frac{ 25 }{ 100}$

15000 per month on sales. 25% of that.

375

I typed what I did.

"She makes 15 dollars an hour and works for 40 dollars per week. " Is that supposed to say 40 hours per week? 40$per week is like 2.70 hours :P 12. help123please. 40 hours,yes,sorry 13. help123please. yep. 14. KonradZuse so we do$15 per hour * 40 hours per week * 4 weeks.

wait..can u check what i did

then we need her 25% of her sales. What you did above isn't correct.

Oh.

not too sure what you were trying to show honestly.

Maybe some math trick or something :p but it's not 15 * 40 * 25.

Can u type what ur doing so i understand it better?

She gets 25% of her sales, her sales total are 15,000. She then additionally gets 15$an hour, for 40 hours per week, at 4 weeks a month. 22. help123please. Ok.let me try to work it out 23. KonradZuse Comissions and pay are COMPLETELY different. 24. help123please. Yes. 25. KonradZuse so a hint is that you only do it based on their sales. 26. help123please. ok 27. KonradZuse You could sell 0$ worth of insurance, and still get your 15 * 40 * 4.

ok.

could u work it out so i can understand it?

I gave you everything you need, what are you needing help with!?

What do you think it is?

Do you add them both together?

25 percent of 15000 is 375.

you get the commisions, you get the monthly pay. and add them.

at least i got that right,no?

nope.

OH.

almost.

15*40*4

2400?

yup.

43. saifoo.khan

hehe :p

dONE.

:p

so, 2400 plus

So wee have 2,400 + (15,000 * 0.25)???

2400 is salary

ok. lemme calculate

6.15 I got

:O?

I used a calculator

Hmm. Let me try again,

that's a bit off....

as in 6.15k or 6.15?

What is 15,000 * 0.25?

Just 6.15.

2.4 + 15 × 0.25 = 123 20 = 6.15

and we are using 2400 and 15000

for some reason I'm not getting it.

you need to use the correct values....

6.15 is correct for that, the answer itself is 6,150....

I'm sorry, it might be annoying, ;/

using 2.4, and 15 isn't going to work...

you would also need 0.0025

or 0.00025....

I see what you did, but you cannot chop 0's off of only 2 of the 3.

again 2,400 + (15,000 * 0.25)

i think i know what i did wrong

See, I saw on wiki answers that march was 5 wks long

maybe it is 5 weeks? A normal week is 4. That 5 has nothing to do with what you did wrong.... Look at what you posted, and what I posted...

OK.

Let me see...

First, the salary.

She gets 15 dollars an hour normally.

She works 40 hours.

15 x 40

600

600 x 4 = 2400

25 percent of 15000 is

3750

2400+3750?

6150 total?

YAY! I finally got it!

Thanks!

Yup, correct.
