Scenario: a sales rep has a target of $500,000 and he gets 8% of nett profit after $500,000. If his sales is $502,000, does he get 8% on $502,000 or on $2,000?
Interpretation of a contract requires examination of the contractual document.
If there is an issue as to whether a contract is only a partially integrated, i.e., whether the writing is a final expression of those terms which it contains, but not a complete expression of all terms agreed upon, or if there is an issue as to whether a clause is ambiguous, then courts can allow extrinsic evidence to prove omitted but not inconsistent terms, or to determine the intent of the parties. Berg v. Hudesman, 115 Wn.2d 657, 801 P.2d 222 (1990)
