Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

a real estate agent earned a commission of $3870 on the sale of an $86000 house

let his rate of commission be x,then

x% of $86000 = $3870

(x/100)* 86000  = 3870

x= 387000/86000

x = 4.5 %

so his commission is 4.5%


selling price of home for which  rate of commission is $4950

let the selling price be y

then, 4.5% of y = $4950

        (4.5/100)*y=$4950

                      y = 495000/4.5

                      y= 110000

so the selling price of home for which  rate of commission is $4950 =$ 110000



ANSWER is

selling price=$110000
