    126,00x.34=42840
    42,840x.18=7711.2
    =7711.2

    54,275x.17=9226.75
    9226.75x.09=830.4075

    Is that right anyone?

    are you serious? do you own math home work... grrr. ok, Q2. find out what 17% of his income is, then find out what 9% of what ever that number is... god dude, you're a jr. vip stop acting like one of the noobies.

    Edit: If you can't calculate %'s then you have no business being a marketer. :p
