Alexandra,

Given(week): initial payment - $380 + commissions (2.2%)

gross pay $1395

Lets try to come up with a formula to help solve this problem.

t = sales total

$380 + (2.2% * t ) = $1395

380 + 0.022t = 1395

0.022t = 1015

t = 1015/0.022

t = 46,136.36

Answer: The salesperson sold a total of $46,136.36

I hope this help.

Please feel free to reach out to me for more clarification.

Thanks,

Richmond
