Elena receives a salary plus a commission that is equal to a fixed percentage of her sales revenue. What was the total of Elena’s salary and commission last month ?

(1) Elena’s monthly salary is $1,000. (2) Elena’s commission is 5 percent of her sales revenue.

The Q asks about Salary + % of Sales Revenue ( that is Commission )

Together both statments are not sufficient, Hence E

Elena receives a salary plus a commission that is equal to a fixed percentage of her sales revenue. What was the total of Elena’s salary and commission last month ?

(1) Elena’s monthly salary is $1,000. (2) Elena’s commission is 5 percent of her sales revenue.

1: insuf -> B, C, E 2: insuf then -> C, E

1 and 2: still insuff, we dont know either fixed percentage or the sales vo lume then E

Salary + Comission = x/100* Y 1000*0.05y=xy/100 , therefore we would need to know total revenue or comission amount in order to reach the answer . letter E!!!

Statement 1 - not sufficient (provides with the salary but not the commission) Statement 2 - not sufficient (Revenue needed to calculate the commission)

Elena receives a salary plus a commission that is equal to a fixed percentage of her sales revenue. What was the total of Elena’s salary and commission last month ?

(1) Elena’s monthly salary is $1,000. (2) Elena’s commission is 5 percent of her sales revenue.

nothing said about sales revenue - therefore E
