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 : )
