Sonia is selling her house through a real estate agent whose commission is 6% of the selling price. What should be the selling price so Sonia can get \$84,600?

1. Ms. Sue

1.06 * 84,600 = ?

2. Kat

89,676
but I thought I had to set up problem as an algebraic?

3. Kat

0.96 x = 84,600
x = 84,600/0.96
x = \$ 88,125 selling price

4. Ms. Sue

It should be 0.94x

5. Kat

wait I think it would be 0.94 not 0.96 . the answer would be 90,000

6. Ms. Sue

Test out both answers.

Take 0.06 of both numbers and see which one equals 84,600
