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? Homework Help ✎

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

15% = 0.15
(0.15)($538) = the total commission

Tino's total pay is $206.70.
