Applications of Percents 6-6 Warm Up Estimate. 1. 20% of 602 2. 133 out of 264 3. 151% of 78 4. 0.28 out of 0.95 120 50% 120 30% Possible answers:

Applications of Percents 6-6 Problem of the Day A clothing outlet has a storewide clearance of 10% off all items. In addition, there is a “buy two, get one free” sale on a set of shirts of equal price. What is the total percent price reduction if you buy 3 shirts? 40%

Applications of Percents 6-6 Vocabulary commission commission rate

Applications of Percents 6-6 Salespeople often work for commission. A commission is a fee paid to a person who makes a sale. It is usually a percent of the selling price. This percent is called the commission rate. Often salespeople are paid a commission plus a regular salary.

Applications of Percents 6-6 A real-estate agent is paid a monthly salary of \$900 plus commission. Last month he sold one condominium for \$65,000, earning a 4% commission on the sale. How much was his commission? What was his total pay last month? Additional Example 1: Multiplying by Percents to Find Commission Amounts First find his commission. 4%  \$65,000 = ccommission rate  sales = commission

Applications of Percents 6-6 0.04  65,000 = c Change the percent to a decimal. Additional Example 1 Continued 2600 = c Solve for c. He earned a commission of \$2600 on the sale. Now find his total pay for last month. \$2600 + \$900 = \$3500 commission + salary = total pay. His total pay for last month was \$3500.

Applications of Percents 6-6 A car sales agent is paid a monthly salary of \$700 plus commission. Last month she sold one sports car for \$50,000, earning a 5% commission on the sale.

Applications of Percents 6-6 If the sales tax rate is 6.75%, how much tax would Adrian pay if he bought two CDs at \$16.99 each and one DVD for \$36.29? Additional Example 2: Multiplying by Percents to Find Sales Tax Amounts CD: 2 at \$16.99\$33.98 DVD: 1 at \$36.29 \$36.29 \$70.27Total Price 0.0675  70.27 = 4.743225Write the tax rate as a decimal and multiply by the total price.

Applications of Percents 6-6 Anna earns \$1500 monthly. Of that, \$114.75 is withheld for Social Security and Medicare. What percent of Anna’s earnings are withheld for Social Security and Medicare? Additional Example 3: Using Proportions to Find the Percent of Earnings Think: What percent of \$1500 is \$114.75? Set up a proportion. 114.75 1500 n 100 = n  1500 = 100  114.75 Find the cross products.

Applications of Percents 6-6 Additional Example 3 Continued n = 7.65 7.65% of Anna’s earnings is withheld for Social Security and Medicare. 11,475 1500 n = 1500n = 11,475 Divide both sides by 1500. Simplify.

Applications of Percents 6-6 Bill earns \$2500 monthly. Of that, \$500 is withheld for income tax. What percent of Bill’s earnings are withheld for income tax? Check It Out: Example 3 500 2500 n 100 = 1 5 n = n  5 = 10  1 5n = 100

Applications of Percents 6-6 A furniture sales associate earned \$960 in commission in May. If his commission is 12% of sales, how much were his sales in May?

Let s = total sales 960 = 0.12  sSet up an equation. 960 0.12 = s Divide each side by 0.12. 8000 = s The associate’s sales in May were \$8000. Simplify.

Applications of Percents 6-6 A sales associate earned \$770 in commission in May. If her commission is 7% of sales, how much were her sales in May? Check It Out: Example 4 770 = 0.07  s 770 0.07 = s 11,000 = s She made sales of \$11,000 in May.
