Hello, can you please tell me if I calculated this correctly?
Patrick's Daily sales
Is it better for Patrick to earn 37.8% based on his average daily sales or a flat $2,150 for the week? In your explanation, please show your calculations.
To find the answer I will need to add up the total sales Patrick earns for the week.
5434 + 5406 + 5664 + 5423 + 5689 + 5395 + 5387 = 38,398
To find out what 37.8% of the total sales earned are, I need to multiply the sum times 37.8%
38,398 x 37.8% = 12,624.44
Therefore, it would be better for him to take 37.8% of his sales as he would have earned 12,624.44 this week.
He would earn 10,474.44 more than taking the 2,500 a week.
12,624.44 - 2,500.00 = 10,474.44
