Step-by-step explanation:

He earns a base salary of \$2,000 per month. This amount is constant.

for the first \$5,000 in repairs. Since his repairs for the month was \$10125 which is more than \$5000, it means that he earned

2/100 * 5000 = \$100

He also earns 3 percent over \$5,000. This means that he earns 3% on any amount over \$5000 and this amount is 10125 - 5000 = \$5125. Therefore, amount earned is

3/100 * 5125 = \$153.75

if he exceeds \$10,000 in repairs, he is given a \$500 bonus. His repairs exceeded \$10000. So he gets a \$500 bonus. Gomez's total pay for the month will be

\$2000 + \$100 + \$153.75 + \$500 = \$2753.75
