Re: A sales representative will receive a 15% commission on a sale of \$28 [#permalink]

A sales representative will receive a 15% commission on a sale of \$2800. If she has already received an advance of \$150 on that commission, how much more is she due on the commission?

(A) \$120

(B) \$270

(C) \$320

(D) \$420

(E) \$570

The amount of commission owed is 2800 x 0.15 = 420 dollars.

Since she has already received 150 dollars, 420 - 150 = 270 dollars is still owed to her.
