Sarah works in an appliance store. She gets a commission in addition to her hourly pay. She earns a 2%
commission for sales up to $4000 and a 4% commission for all sales in a month above $4000. Last
month her sales were $5200. How much was her commission?

4,000 * 0.02 = $80
1,200 * 0.04 = $48
Total = $128 commission
