8-88.

Tino works at a retail clothing store as a sales clerk and part of his paycheck is based on commission, meaning that it is determined by the value of the clothes that he sells. Each week, he earns $\7$ an hour plus $15\%$ of his total sales. If Tino works for $18$ hours and sells $\538$ in clothes in a certain week, what is the amount of his commission? What is his total pay for that week?

What is the equation you could use to find the commission Tino earns?

$15\%=0.15$
$(0.15)(\538)=\text{the total commission}$

Tino's total pay is $\206.70$.
