  2. Or... if you have been taught to set it up as a proportional situation you have
    Commission/sales = commission/sales
    Steve just showed you the work once you have already got your proportional situation arranged : ) The question shows $175/$3000 and you need to know the commission for $6500 in sales...
    So...
    $175/$3000 = Commission/$6500
    So solve for Commission just as Steve did by multiplying both sides by 6500 : )
