Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0$489  $405 = $84 $900  $500 = $400 Thus, from every dollar of merchandise she sells, she gets $(84 / 400) $1700  $900 = $800 Thus, she will earn $(84 / 400) * (800) = $168 more. Hence, her salary for selling $1700 worth of merchandise is: $489 + $168 = $657
