I got 3375 for some reason

So lets do what we know.

- anonymous

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

- KonradZuse

15000 per month on sales. 25% of that.

- anonymous

375

- anonymous

I typed what I did.

- KonradZuse

"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

- anonymous

40 hours,yes,sorry

- anonymous

yep.

- KonradZuse

so we do $15 per hour * 40 hours per week * 4 weeks.

- anonymous

wait..can u check what i did

- KonradZuse

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

- anonymous

Oh.

- KonradZuse

not too sure what you were trying to show honestly.

- KonradZuse

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

- anonymous

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

- KonradZuse

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.

- anonymous

Ok.let me try to work it out

- KonradZuse

Comissions and pay are COMPLETELY different.

- anonymous

Yes.

- KonradZuse

so a hint is that you only do it based on their sales.

- anonymous

ok

- KonradZuse

You could sell 0$ worth of insurance, and still get your 15 * 40 * 4.

- anonymous

ok.

- anonymous

could u work it out so i can understand it?

- KonradZuse

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

- anonymous

What would the answer be,then?

- KonradZuse

What do you think it is?

- anonymous

Do you add them both together?

- anonymous

25 percent of 15000 is 375.

- KonradZuse

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

- anonymous

at least i got that right,no?

- KonradZuse

nope.

- anonymous

OH.

- KonradZuse

almost.

- anonymous

15*40*4

- anonymous

2400?

- KonradZuse

yup.

- saifoo.khan

Everyone should fan @KonradZuse !!

- KonradZuse

hehe :p

- anonymous

dONE.

- KonradZuse

:p

- anonymous

so, 2400 plus

- KonradZuse

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

- anonymous

2400 is salary

- anonymous

ok. lemme calculate

- anonymous

6.15 I got

- KonradZuse

:O?

- anonymous

I used a calculator

- anonymous

Hmm. Let me try again,

- KonradZuse

that's a bit off....

- KonradZuse

as in 6.15k or 6.15?

- KonradZuse

What is 15,000 * 0.25?

- anonymous

Just 6.15.

- anonymous

2.4 + 15 × 0.25 = 123 20 = 6.15

- KonradZuse

and we are using 2400 and 15000

- anonymous

Will you give me the answer and re explain? please?

- anonymous

for some reason I'm not getting it.

- KonradZuse

you need to use the correct values....

- KonradZuse

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

- anonymous

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

- KonradZuse

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

- KonradZuse

you would also need 0.0025

- KonradZuse

or 0.00025....

- KonradZuse

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

- anonymous

Type the equation please.

- KonradZuse

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

- anonymous

i think i know what i did wrong

- anonymous

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

- KonradZuse

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...

- anonymous

OK.

- anonymous

Let me see...

- anonymous

First, the salary.

- anonymous

She gets 15 dollars an hour normally.

- anonymous

She works 40 hours.

- anonymous

15 x 40

- anonymous

600

- anonymous

600 x 4 = 2400

- anonymous

25 percent of 15000 is

- anonymous

3750

- anonymous

2400+3750?

- anonymous

6150 total?

- anonymous

konrad?

- anonymous

YAY! I finally got it!

- anonymous

Thanks!

- KonradZuse

Yup, correct.

- anonymous

Thank you!
