A. Mr. Babe made a commission of $14.85
B. He makes $15.75 per hour after the raise.
Stepbystep explanation:
A. While he worked there, Mr. Babe earned 3% on how much he sells. If he sold $495 couch, how much commission did he make?
Worth of sold couch = $495
Commission = 3%
Amount of commission = 3% of total worth sold
Amount of commission = [tex]\frac{3}{100}*495[/tex]
Amount of commission = [tex]\frac{1485}{100}=\$14.85[/tex]
Mr. Babe made a commission of $14.85
B. On top of his commission, Mr. Babe made $15 per hour. He eventually got a raise with an increase of 5% per hour. After the raise, how much did he make per hour?
Amount earned per hour = $15
Increase = 5%
As the increment is on per hour amount, therefore,
Amount of increase = 5% of per hour amount
Amount of increase = [tex]\frac{5}{100}*15=\frac{75}{100} = \$0.75[/tex]
New amount per hour = Per hour amount + amount of increase
New amount per hour = 15+0.75 = $15.75
He makes $15.75 per hour after the raise.
