This year Stephanie's commission rate will be cut to2.8%, but her base salary will be raised to $14,000 per year.
Should she be concerned? What would the difference in her salary have been if this pan had been in place last year?

    You will need background information on this question.

    -What the commission rate was before.
    -What the salary was before.

    Also I think you have a mis spelling that would help me understand the question more, the word you wrote is pan, is that the right word?

    When you most that I will try and help!

    oh sorry about MY spelling now-

    "When you most that I will try and help" should be changed to "When you make those changes, I will try and help".

    I really don't know how that other sentece came out! It makes no sense at all ! Sorry again:)

    (but they don't have any other information about the commission rate before of even the salary rate)

    I'm so sorry, but with out that info, it is super hard to put down an answer.

    I can understand why you are having such difficulty!

    I would leave that question and ask your teacher.

    And if for some reason you cannot do that, maybe repost the question- some one who is super smarticle may be able to give you an answer!

    Good Luck!
