Ray Welborn is a car salesman. He earns a 7 percent commission on every car he sells. If he sold two cars this month totaling $58,965.00, what is the amount of Ray’s commission ?
Whenever you see a pecentage like this: 7 %, it means: 7 / 100 =0.07 . Now, you would simply multiply this by his total sales for the month:
0.07 x $58,965.00 = $4,127.55 - This is his commission for that month.
