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.
