    a salesperson's commission from the number of items sold. Assume that all items
    have a fixed price of $10 per unit. Use a Select Case statement to implement the following
    sales commission schedule:

    Fewer than 10 items sold = 1% commission
    Between 10 and 40 items sold = 2% commission
    Between 41 and 100 items sold = 4% commission
    More than 100 items sold = 8% commission
