Don't want to get out the calculator but here's what you need to punch in since commission is 5.5% (.055 as a decimal) and his commssion is this portion of a total sales amount (X)
.055 (X) = 214.28
214.28/.055 = X
Please only use the answers which use this equation the others answers (1178 etc) are wrong
to figure out this problem i mutiplied 5.5 times 214.28 and that gave me 1178.54 then you move then decimal over 1 because its 5.5 move the decimal over once to the left EQUALS 117.854
In commission you multiply what you earn by a certain percentage so to see what he made before commission you would divide.
5.5%= .055
.055 X 214.28= 3896
to check if it's right multiply 3896 by 5.5% and get the answer
$3896 X .055= 214.28
IDK
what is this, your math homework?
$214.28 * 5.5% = $11.7854
1178.54
sales x 0.055 = 214.28$
sales = 214.28/0.055
sales = 3896$
His sales were 3896 $ for the month of September!
214.28/.055=3896 in sales? i think thats how you would do it
cuz .055 or 5.5% times 3896 = 214.28

Use tehans triangle

So 214.28 / .055=3896.00
