Answer:

Total sales should be worth #$15,000#.

Explanation:

If the total earning expected is #$3,000# and the salary paid is #$500# plus #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 #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 xx1/6=2,500#

Multiply both sides by #6#.

#x=2,500xx6#

#x=15,000#
