Hence, the amount of sales revenue is $752,000.

Calculation of the amount of commission:

Commission=Sales revenue×Commission rate=$752,000×10%=$75,200

Hence, the amount of commission is $75,200.

Calculation of sales revenue percentage with respect to sales revenue:

Sales revenue percentage=(Sales revenueSales revenue)×100=($752,000$752,000)×100=100%

The sales revenue percentage is 100%.
