#### Solution

Merchant gives 5% commission and 1.5% del credere commission.

Goods sold by agent = ₹ 30,600

∴ Commission earned = Rate of commission × Goods sold

= 5% × 30,600

= ₹ 1,530

Delcredere commission earned = 1.5% × 30,600

= ₹ 459

∴ Total commission earned by agent

= ₹ 1,530 + 4,59

= ₹ 1,989

∴ Amount received by Merchant

= Goods sold – Commission given

= 30,600 – 1,989

= ₹ 28,611

∴ Commission given to the agent is ₹ 1,989 and merchant will receive ₹ 28,611 after deducting commission.
