Mark is paid a graduated commission. He is paid 5% of the first $4000 pf sales, 6% of the next $6000 and 10% on any further sales. Last month his total sales amounted to $13520. What's his gross income for the month?

Update:

Is it $912?

    so further sales = 13520 - (4000+6000)

    =3520

    So income = (0.05)(4000)+(0.06)(6000)+(0.1)(3520)

    =200+360+352

    =912

    you were correct

    mustafa, is not right as he made 3520, 3250 easy mistake to make on a computer!

    5% of the $4000 is = $200

    6% of the $6000 is = $360

    Now he earned $13520, so you have to remove the first $4000 and the second $6000.

    He now remains with $3250

    so, 10% os $3250 = $325

    Mark's total income is the addition of all = $885
