commission would mean that he gets a percent of what he earned, so that would be 15% of 25,000.

Not sure where you need help since you didn't show work.

to get 15% of 25,000 you would have to multiply 25,000 by .15 (everytime you multipy a number and want a percent of that number you divide the percent by 100 and multiply it by the number you want the percent of.) so

(.15)(25,000)= ______?

take that number and add it to 850 and you should get what you are looking for.
