an appliance salesman receives a commission of 15% of all sales. last week he sold a refrigerator priced at $755,a dishwasher priced at $450, and a range priced at $535. what is the total commission he earned for the week?

1)$26.10
2)$104.40
3)$116.00
4)$261.00
5)$1740.00

  • math -

    commission means how much he made.

    Anyways, I worked it out as follows
    Add all the prices up
    755+450+535=1740

    Set up a proportion
    x/1740=15/100

    x = (1740*15)/100

    4)$261.00
