• C is the total commission amount ($) • R is the commission rate (%) To calculate the value of a sale using reverse commission, divide the total commission amount by the commission rate. ## How to Calculate Reverse Commission? The following example problems outline how to calculate Reverse Commission. Example Problem #1: 1. First, determine the total commission amount ($).
• The total commission amount ($) is given as: 400. 2. Next, determine the commission rate (%). • The commission rate (%) is provided as: 10. 3. Finally, calculate the Reverse Commission using the equation above: S = C / (R/100) The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated: S = 400 / (10/100) = 4000 ($)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total commission amount (\$) = 500

commission rate (%) = 5

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

S = C / (R/100) = ?
