# Joyce Flynn, an insurance agent, earned in her first week on the job a commission of \$1,800. Her commission percent is 30 percent. Joyce's total sales for the week was:

Answer: if 1800 is the 30% of the total, so 1800 / .30 = 6,000

Using the provided information, it is determined that \$6000 was Joyce's total weekly sales.

### What does the percent mean?

• Percent, which is a relative value used to denote hundredths of any quantity.
• Since one percent (symbolized as 1%) is equal to one hundredth of something, 100 percent stands for everything, and 200 percent refers to twice the amount specified.

### What is the significance of percentage?

Comparing two amounts while rebasing the second amount to 100 is the simplest way to use percentages.

Given:

An insurance agent named Joyce Flynn made a commission of \$1,800 in her first week on the job. She receives a 30% commission.

We need to find the total sales for the week.

Let, x = total commission

Since, 30% of total commission is 1800. So, total sales will be:

x =  1800/0.30 = 6000

Therefore, Joyce's total sales for the week is found to be \$6000 by using the given data.
