• For 1 item sold,
o Antoinette’s commission = $60 + x % of SP of 1 item
• For 12 items sold,
o Antoinette’s commission = 12 * 60 + x % of SP of 12 items = 1417 ---- (1)
• SP of 12 items = 3485
Form (1) we get:
• 720 + x% of 3485 = 1417
• x% of 3485 = 697
• x = 697 * 100/3485
• x = 20%

For 1 item sold, A’s commission = $60 + x % of SP of 1 item
Now for 12 items sold, A's commission => 12*60 + x % of (SP of 12 items) = 1417
Given: SP of 12 items = 3485, substiuting in the above equation, we get:
x= 20
