Textbook Problem

Pamela Mello is paid on an incremental commission schedule. She is paid 2.6% on the first $60,000 and 3.4% on any sales over $60,000. If her weekly sales volume was $89,400, what was her total commission?

To determine

**To calculate:** The Pamela Mello’s total commission, if her weekly sales volume is $89,400. She works on an incremental commission schedule and gets paid 2.6% on the first $60,000 and 3.4% on sales over $60,000.

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The provided sales volume is $89,400 and Pamela gets paid 2.6% on the first $60,000 and 3.4% on sales over $60,000.

**Formula used:**

To calculate gross pay by incremental commission:

Step 1. Calculate the pay at each level by multiplying the total sales and the commission rate for that level.

Step 2. Calculate the total commission by adding the pays from each level.

**Calculation:**

As Pamela Mello’s sales volume is $89,400, commission rate is 2.6% for sales up to $60,000 and commission rate is 3.4% for sales more than $60,000,

So, she has commission rate 3.4% for sales of

Now to find her total commission first find her level wise pay,

To calculate level 1 pay, consider rate of commission and sales volume,

2.6% and $60,000

Apply the formula,

As,

So,
