A salesperson works 40 hours per week at a job where he has two options for being paid. Option A is an hourly wage(per hour) of ​$25. Option B is a commission rate of 10​% on weekly sales. How much does he need to sell this week to earn the same amount with the two​ options?

Hi there...

 

On one hand...
If he works 40 hours on hourly pay of $25,- per hour, that equals $1000,- per week.
On the other hand...
If he chooses to work on commission equaling 10% of weekly sales.
That would mean that he has to sell for a total of $10000,- for the 10% commission to equal his hourly pay of $1000,- a week.

 

I hope that helped a bit?

 

 

Kind regards
