To determine

To calculate: The last week’s total gross pay for Katie Jergens who works for Dynamic Designs selling clothing. She sold 19 dresses, 26 skirts and 17 jackets each one at $79.95, $24.75 and $51.50 respectively. Her per week salary is $140 in addition she gets a commission of 7%.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided numbers of sold dresses, skirts, jackets are 19, 26, 17 and their prices are $79.95, $24.75, $51.50 respectively. Her per week salary is $140 in addition she gets a commission of 7%.

Formula used:

To calculate commission:

Commission=Commission rate×Sales subject to commission

To calculate total gross pay:

Total gross pay=Salary+Commission

Calculation:

To calculate Katie’s total gross pay first find her total sales of different types of cloths and her commission for total sales and then add her per week salary and commission.

Now to calculate her total sales of dresses, skirts and jackets,

First consider number of dresses she sold and price of per dress,

19 and $79.95

Now multiply them,

$79.95×          19_719 55799 5  _$1,519.05__

So, Total sales of dresses=$1,519.05.

Second consider number of skirts she sold and price of per skirt,

26 and $24.75

Now multiply them,

$24.75×       26_148 50495 0  _$643.50__

So, Total sales of skirts=$643.50.

Third consider number of jackets she sold and price of per jacket,

17 and $51.50

Now multiply them,

$51.50×       17_360 50515 0  _$875.50__

So, Total sales of jackets=$875
