Sally earns graduated commission on her sales each month. She earns 6% commission on the first $45,000 in sales and 8% on anything over that. If Sally had $51,000 in sales this month, how much commission did she earn?

To find the answer we must calculate her comission earnings for $45.000 and for the amount she sold above $45.000 (in our case, 51.000 - 45.000 = 6.000). So in total we have 6/100 * 45.000 + 8/100 * 6000 = 2700 + 480 = 3180.
