was her monthly wage before the 2003 increase?

2. After selling their house and paying a commission of 5.00%, the owners

received $228,950. What was the actual selling price of the house?

3. 175 ml of pure salt is added to 300 ml of a 23% saline solution. What is the

new percent of salt in the solution?

I have the answer but i wasn't sure about the work i did because i sort deviated from what my teacher taught me which was to use the formula A=RT (where A= amount, R=rate, T=total)
