So lets do what we know.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Salary : 15*40*25 = 3,000 Commission : \[\frac{ 375 }{ 15000} = \frac{ 25 }{ 100}\]
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
15000 per month on sales. 25% of that.
anonymous
  • anonymous
375
anonymous
  • anonymous
I typed what I did.
KonradZuse
  • 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
  • anonymous
40 hours,yes,sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
so we do $15 per hour * 40 hours per week * 4 weeks.
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait..can u check what i did
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
then we need her 25% of her sales. What you did above isn't correct.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
not too sure what you were trying to show honestly.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
Maybe some math trick or something :p but it's not 15 * 40 * 25.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can u type what ur doing so i understand it better?
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
She gets 25% of her sales, her sales total are 15,000. She then additionally gets 15$ an hour, for 40 hours per week, at 4 weeks a month.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok.let me try to work it out
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
Comissions and pay are COMPLETELY different.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
so a hint is that you only do it based on their sales.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
You could sell 0$ worth of insurance, and still get your 15 * 40 * 4.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok.
anonymous
  • anonymous
could u work it out so i can understand it?
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
I gave you everything you need, what are you needing help with!?
anonymous
  • anonymous
What would the answer be,then?
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
What do you think it is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you add them both together?
anonymous
  • anonymous
25 percent of 15000 is 375.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
you get the commisions, you get the monthly pay. and add them.
anonymous
  • anonymous
at least i got that right,no?
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
nope.
anonymous
  • anonymous
OH.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
almost.
anonymous
  • anonymous
15*40*4
anonymous
  • anonymous
2400?
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
yup.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Everyone should fan @KonradZuse !!
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
hehe :p
anonymous
  • anonymous
dONE.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
:p
anonymous
  • anonymous
so, 2400 plus
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
So wee have 2,400 + (15,000 * 0.25)???
anonymous
  • anonymous
2400 is salary
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok. lemme calculate
anonymous
  • anonymous
6.15 I got
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
:O?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I used a calculator
anonymous
  • anonymous
Hmm. Let me try again,
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
that's a bit off....
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
as in 6.15k or 6.15?
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
What is 15,000 * 0.25?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Just 6.15.
anonymous
  • anonymous
2.4 + 15 × 0.25 = 123 20 = 6.15
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
and we are using 2400 and 15000
anonymous
  • anonymous
Will you give me the answer and re explain? please?
anonymous
  • anonymous
for some reason I'm not getting it.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
you need to use the correct values....
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
6.15 is correct for that, the answer itself is 6,150....
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm sorry, it might be annoying, ;/
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
using 2.4, and 15 isn't going to work...
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
you would also need 0.0025
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
or 0.00025....
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
I see what you did, but you cannot chop 0's off of only 2 of the 3.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Type the equation please.
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
again 2,400 + (15,000 * 0.25)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think i know what i did wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
See, I saw on wiki answers that march was 5 wks long
KonradZuse
  • 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
  • anonymous
OK.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Let me see...
anonymous
  • anonymous
First, the salary.
anonymous
  • anonymous
She gets 15 dollars an hour normally.
anonymous
  • anonymous
She works 40 hours.
anonymous
  • anonymous
15 x 40
anonymous
  • anonymous
600
anonymous
  • anonymous
600 x 4 = 2400
anonymous
  • anonymous
25 percent of 15000 is
anonymous
  • anonymous
3750
anonymous
  • anonymous
2400+3750?
anonymous
  • anonymous
6150 total?
anonymous
  • anonymous
konrad?
anonymous
  • anonymous
YAY! I finally got it!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks!
KonradZuse
  • KonradZuse
Yup, correct.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you!
