last year Stephanie was paid a base salary of $12,000/ year plus a commission of 3% on the total dollar value of her sales. She sold $1,120,000 worth of company products. How much did she make?

Ok, so to actually solve the question and get the right answer..
So the equation to solve this question would be 12,000+ (1,120,000 x 0.03)
Acording to Grade 8 Math curriculum BEDMAS (brackets, exponets, dividing, multiplying, adding, then subtracting) you would do what was in the brackets first. The answer is 33,600.
So now your equation would be 12,000+ 33,600.
The answer is 45, 600.
Hope this helped! 
thanks that really did help a lot
