    Mr. Anderson's base salary is $200. He gets that no matter what. Then he will earn additional money if he sells over $1,000 worth of goods. He sold $2,500; therefore, he sold $2,500 - 1,000 = $1,500 on which he can earn a commission. His commission is 15%; therefore, 0.15 x $1,500 = $225.00 in commissions. So his total salary for the week is what? $200 base + $225 commission = ??

    $425.00
