First, calculate the commission for each tier of sales:

1. First $20,000:

2\% \text{ of } 20,000 = 0.02 \times 20,000 = 400

2. Next $50,000 (from $20,000 to $70,000):

6\% \text{ of } 50,000 = 0.06 \times 50,000 = 3,000

3. Next $12,000 (from $70,000 to $82,000):

8.5\% \text{ of } 12,000 = 0.085 \times 12,000 = 1,020

Add the commissions from each tier:

400 + 3,000 + 1,020 = 4,420

Thus, the total commission is

4,420
