  1. I assume the front foot is the perimeter of the lot.

    2(80 + 200) = 560 feet

    560 * 500 * 0.1 = $_________ commission

    Multiply the commission by 0.6 to find the salesperson's money.

  3. Your answer is correct if we assume that the frontage is 80 feet. The problem isn't clear about which number to use for the front feet.
