Here you are given a percentage, but it's always better to see it as a decimal. 6%=0.06.
Now it states that he earns 0.06 OF the amount that he sells a house for!
How can we represent an 'of' statement?
For example, if I say, I want 1/2 of something, what do I do?
So would you multiply $280,000 by 0.06? That got me $16,800....
Yep! That's how much he earned from selling that house. He sells real estate, but he doesn't own the house. He helps sell the house, and he earns 0.06 of what that house sold for.
