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
