A Salesperson is paid 6% commission. How much does she sell to make $800?
The commission the sales person gets = 6%.
To determine the sale for which the sales person eans $800.
We know that for every dollar of earning, the salesperson should sell 100/6 dollars of sale.
Therefore to earn $800 , he should sell 800* 100/6 = 80000/6 dollars of sale. This works out $13333.33 or more worth sale the salesperson has to do in order that he should earn a commision of %800.
So the round figeure of the sale is $13334 to earn %8000.
sale = $13334. Commission aT 6% = 13334*0.6 = $800.4.
Sale = 13333. commission = 13333*0.06 = $799.98, which less than $800.
