    1.  Felix’s sales are $53000. He has 3% of sales over $4800, then he has 3% of sales $(53000-4800)=$48200.

    Now

    $48200 — 100%

    $x — 3%.

    Write a proportion:

    \dfrac{48200}{x}=\dfrac{100}{3},\\ \\x=\dfrac{48200\cdot 3}{100}=482\cdot 3=1446.

    Thus, he additionally gets $1446.

    2. If he earns $450 per week and earns $1446 of sales, then Felix earns

    $450+$1446=$1896.
