Jerry monthly salary consist of $850 pluss commission of 15 % on the total sales made.If his total sales for the month of March is $ 25 000 ,what is his income for the month of March?

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. 
Thank you christina ...
