(1) In 1988 Jean's commission was 5 percent of the total amount of her sales. Nothing about the amount of Jean's sales. Not sufficient. (2) The amount of Jean's sales in the second half of 1988 averaged$10,000 per month more than in the first half. If the average sales per month in the first half was x, then the total sales for the year was 6x+6(x+10,000). Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Commission = 0.05*(6x+6(x+10,000)), we need the value of x to answer the question. Not sufficient.
