I'm a student in distance education programm. I had a math exam and got 1 mistake. I tried to analyze my mistake but didn't understand. English is my second language and that is the reason why I ask this question.
Could you please point me which part of word problem I have misinterpreted?
Johnson earns $200 a week plus a 15% commission on all sales
over $1,000. If Mr.
Johnson's sales for one week are $2,500, what is his gross pay for
$2500*0.15=$375 ... this is his commission money
$200 ... this is his weekly pay
$575 ... this is his gross pay
So the answer SHOULD be D.$575, but it's not... it's B.
