Actural cost, selling price and commission 
20080221 

From LiSa: I have a question about a few things if anyone can answer...
ex.
actual cost (AC) = $1000
selling price (SP) = $
amount earned for company (C) = 15% of... selling price?
commission 1 (C1) = 2.5%
commission 2 (C2) = 2.5%
How would you calculate how much the company's commission amount would be as well as the amounts for the other 2 that get 2.5%? And what would the selling price be? (the 15% $ + 2.5% $ + 2.5% $ ?)
Is the 2.5% taken from the original amount? I am soooo confused!
If anyone could help, that would be great! Answered by Harley Weston.
