Calculation of Commission:

1. Commission @7.5% on sales at invoice price (1600 x 400 x 7.5/100)                                         = Rs.48000

2. Commission @ 20% on sales exceeding sales at invoice price (800000 - 640000) x 20/100 = Rs.32000

Total                                                                                                                                                                 = Rs.80000

Invoice price is cost plus 33 1/3% of invoice price.

Invoice Price                                   = Rs.300

Load 33 1/3% of Rs.300               = Rs.100

Invoice Price (Rs.300+Rs.100)   = Rs.400
