commission on  first $100,000 = 8% of $100,000 = (8/100)(100,000) = $ 8,000 

let amount  that exceeds $100,000.= $ x

commission on amount  that exceeds $100,000.= 3% of x = $(3x/100)

total commision = $(8000 + 3x/100

 = (800,000 + 3x) / 100 = 9200

(800,000 + 3x) = 9200(100)

  3x = 920,000 - 800,000

x = 120,000/3 =40,000

the selling of the house = 100,000 + 40,000 =$140,000
