Total commission (Standard Commission) for Accessories =

1486-490=996, now since here return % is 3.4,which is < 4.5% so incentive will also be there,
So total commission = 996+ 996(1/200)=1000.98, So yes total is >1000

Total commission (Standard Commission) for Cosmetics =

1404-395=1009, now since here return % is 1.3,which is < 4.5% so incentive will also be there,
So total commission = 1009+ 1009(1/200)=1014.04, So yes total is >1000

Total commission (Standard Commission) for Home goods=

1775-780=995, now since here return % is 2.9,which is < 4.5% so incentive will also be there,
So total commission = 995+ 995(1/200)=999.975, So no total is <1000

Re: Kartman's Department Store sales figures for the first week of the [#permalink]
An way to do this very quick, without calculator, just by using notable products:
Accessories)
• 1486-490 = 996
• 996*1,005 >?< 1k <=> 996*1005/1k >?< 1k <=> (1k-4)*(1k+5)/1k >?< 1k <=> [(1k)²+(1k)-20]/1k >?< 1k <=> 1k+[1k-20]/1k >?< 1k
• 996*1,005 > 1k
Cosmetics)
• 1404- 395 = 1009
Home Goods)
• 1775-780= 995
• 995*1,005 >?< 1k <=> 995*1005/1k >?< 1k <=> (1k-5)*(1k+5)/1k >?< 1k <=> [(1k)²-25]/1k >?< 1k <=> 1k-[25/1k] >?< 1k
• 995*1,005 < 1k
