[Mathematic Form 1] Commission

Commission is the amount of money paid to an agent for his or her effort in selling a product or service.

Commission = Percentage commission (commission rate) x Amount of sales

Eg:
1. A book salesman will receive a commission of 15% on the sale of books. If his sales of book reach RM2,500, find the commission the salesman will get.

Commission = Percentage commission (commission rate) x Amount of sales
Commission = 15% x RM2,500
Commission = (15/100) x RM2,500 = RM375

The salesman will get RM375 as commission.

2. Yazid gets a commission of RM15 for the sale of shoes at RM500. Calculate the percentage of commission given to him.

Percentage of commission = (Commission / Amount of sales) x 100%
Percentage of commission = (RM15 / RM500) x 100% = 3%

The percentage of commission given to Yazid is 3%.

3. Hisham will be given a commission of 5% for every notebook he sells. If he sells 3 notebooks which cost RM3,500 each, how much commission will he receive?

Percentage of commission = 5%
Amount of sales = RM3,500 x 3 = RM10,500

Commission = Percentage commission (commission rate) x Amount of sales
Commission = 5% x RM10,500
Commission = (5 / 100) x RM10,500 = 0.05 x RM10,500 = RM525

Hisham will get RM525 as commission.

4. Rahman was paid a commission of RM4,000 for selling a house. If the price of the house was RM250,000, what was the commission rate?

Commission = RM4,000
Amount of sales = RM250,000
Percentage commission (commission rate) = (Commission / Amount of sales) x 100%
Commission rate = (RM4,000 /RM 250,000) x 100%
Commission rate = 0.016 x 100% = 1.6%

The commission rate is 1.6%.

5. A salesman receives RM1,500 as commission for the sale of books. If the commission is 25%, find the amount of sales that the salesman has obtained.

Commission = RM1,500
Percentage commission = 25%

Percentage commission (commission rate) = (Commission / Amount of sales) x 100%
Amount of sales = (Commission / Percentage commission) x 100%
Amount of sales = (RM1,500 / 25%) x 100%
Amount of sales = RM6,000

The amount of sales that the salesman has obtained is RM6,000.
