First you need to calculate how much commision is due and how much interest is due.

Now you have to figure out what accounts to use. Hint: Both of your journal entries will include an expense account and a payable account.

1. Profit of \$106,000 * 6% = \$6,360 Commission Payable.
Debit Commission Expense (or other appropriate expense account) for 6,360
Credit Commission Payable for 6,360

2. Interest = Principal * Rate (annual rate) * Time (in years or months/12 months for partial year). Therefore your loan of \$150,000 * 9% rate * 9/12 time = \$10,125 Interest Payable
Debit Interest Expense of 10,125
Credit Interest Payable of 10,125

I would do #1 differently to compute the amount of the commission. First, I was wondering if you meant \$106,000 or if we are talking a different currency than dollars. The question states "6% on net profit after charging such commision", so you need a basic algebra equation to solve. Assuming we are talking dollars, we solve for commissions as follows:

X = .06 * (106,000-x)

X=6360-.06x
1.06x=6360
X=6360/1.06=6,000

You can check this by saying your sales were \$106,000, your commission was \$6,000, and your net sales are therefore \$100,000. As the problem states, the commission is 6% of net sales, and 6% of \$100,000 is \$6,000.
