Three cars were sold through an agent for ₹ 2,40,000, ₹ 2,22,000 and ₹ 2,25,000 respectively. The rates of commission were 17.5% on the first, 12.5% on the second. If the agent overall received 14% commission on the total sales, find the rate of commission paid on the third car.

Solution: Total selling Price of three cars = 2,40,000 + 2,22,000 + 2,25,000

= `square`

Commision on total sale = 14%

= `14/100 xx square`

Selling price of First car = ₹ 2,40,000

Rate of commission = 17.5% 

= `17.5/100 xx 2,40,000 = square`

∴ Commission on first car = ₹ `square`

Selling price of Second car = ₹ 2,22,000

Rate of commission = 12.5%

= `12.5/100 xx 2,22,000 = square`

∴ Commission on second car = ₹ `square`

Selling price of third car = ₹ 2,25,000

Let the rate of commission be x

Commission on third car = `x/100 xx 2,25,000`

∴ Commission on third car = Total commission − (commission on first car + commission on second car)

∴ `x/100 xx 2,25,000 = square - {square + square}`

∴ x = `square`


An agent places insurance for ₹ 4,00,000 on life of a person. The premium is to be paid annually at the rate of ₹ 35 per thousand per annum. Find the agent’s commission at 15% on the premium.


Mr. Pavan is paid a fixed weekly salary plus commission based on percentage of sales made by him. If on the sale of ₹68,000 and ₹73,000 in two successive weeks, he received in all ₹9880 and ₹10, 180. Complete the following activity to find his weekly salary and the rate of commission paid to him.

Solution: Income of Mr. Pavan = Weekly salary + Commission on sales

Salary + Commission on ₹68,000 = ₹9880      ... (1)

Salary+ Commission on ₹73,000 = ₹10,180     ... (2)

Subtracting (1) from (2), we get

Commission on ₹5000 = ₹ `square`

∴ the rate of commission = `square/5000 xx 100` = 6%

Commission on ₹68,000 at 6% = ₹`68000 xx6/100 = square`

From (1) and (3), we get Salary = ₹(9880 - 4080) = `square`

Hence, fixed weekly salary is ₹5800 and the rate of commission is 6%.
