# Veronica earns an annual salary of \$30,572 plus commission. She receives a 5% commission on sales of \$3,675. What is her gross annual pay?

Veronica's gross annual pay will be \$30,755.75.

· This is because 5% of \$3,675 is \$183.75

· Then you would add the \$183.75 to her annual salary of \$30,572 to make \$30,755.75

As this is no doubt a homework question it is important that you know how to find the percentage of a figure; as this is basically the lesson of the question.

Therefore you should try completing the tasks on the following website to help you learn how to work out percentages of numbers and percentage increases and decreases:

If you are unsure if you have correctly worked out the percentage then you can use a handy little tool called the percentage converter. However this should only be used to check your answer and not simply to do the question in the first place.

You will find a simple percentage converter at the following website:

Homework is about developing your skills and knowledge of the subject and so you should always do it honestly and put all your effort into it. Yes it can be hard and you may not understand everything but you only have to ask for help. A teacher or your parents may be able to sit through the work with you and explain it a slightly different way - which is all it may take to finally click with you.

If you keep practicing percentage sums then you will soon do them with ease and you will find it is a great skill to have in later life when you are working out the discounts in the sales.
