# Question 6b350

Total sales should be worth $15,000. #### Explanation: If the total earning expected is $3,000 and the salary paid is $500 plus $\frac{1}{6}$of sales. then the amount that must come as a commission from sales is $3 , 000 - 500$, which is $2,500#.

This amount represents $\frac{1}{6}$ of the sales you must make which we shall represent as $x$. To find $x$, the total sales to be made, we write:

$x \times \frac{1}{6} = 2 , 500$

Multiply both sides by $6$.

$x = 2 , 500 \times 6$

$x = 15 , 000$
