The commission that Craig receives can be classified as Fixed and Variable commission. Since he sold 6 appliances, Fixed commission for 6 appliances = 50 * 6 = 300; Variable commission for 6 appliances = (0.1) * 3,620 = 362;
Total commission = 300 + 362 = 662;
Ans is (E).

(A) $412 (B) $526 (C) $585 (D) $605 (E) $662
we can find 10% of the Six appliances individually or 10% of the total of Six appliances . Since individual prices are not given but we know the total of the six appliances hence 10% of 3620=362 50*6 for the 6 appliances he sold = 300 300+362 =662 Answer E

(A) $412 (B) $526 (C) $585 (D) $605 (E) $662
Commissions per product: $50 Commissions for 6 product = 50 x 6 = $300
He gets 10% of selling price. So he gets 10% of the total selling price = 10% of 3620 = 362
Combined = 362+ 300 = $662
