Assuming the discount is applied before the sales tax is added... 20% of 52 is 10.4, so the price after discount is 41.60. 7% of 41.60 is 2.91 - so your final price is 44.51

What was Mr sellers' commission last week in dollars if he got a 6 percent commission from 1800 dollars in sales and how much will he have to sell this week to earn 120 dollars in commission?

Set up the problem and solve it: Sales * %commission = earnings (now insert the known numbers) 1800 * .06 = earnings (6% is the same as .06, now multiply to solve) 108 = earnings Now, to find how much he will have to sell to earn $120 using the same formula: sales * %commission = earnings (now insert the known numbers) sales * .06 = 120 (now divide both sides of the equation by .06) sales = 120/ .06 (do the division and solve) sales = 2000 (Mr Sellers needs to sell $2000 to earn $120 in commission)
