Selling Price=$7787.50*8=62300

Russel takes $75 commission on each car plus 1% of sticker Cost.
So Income= $75*8 + 1/100($62300) =1223

It means answer is D.

Consider KUDOS if u like the solution.

For selling 8 cars the commision is 8*$75 = $600
Plus there is the 1% bonus which will be 1%*$7787.5*8 = $623
Total amount earned = $600 + $623 = $1263

Answer is (d) indeed !

Since Russell receives a $75 commission plus 1% of the sticker price for each car sold, last week he earned:

8 x 75 + 0.01(8 x 7,787.50) = 600 + 0.01(62,300) = 600 + 623 = $1,223

Answer: D
