You forgot a ; behind the line that calculates the commission and the newline should probably be written after the price has been read and before the commission is written.

You have to add the semicolon at the end of the statement. change
  commission=0.075 * price
to
  commission=0.075 * price;

This is the correct code:

#include <iostream>
main ()
{
  float price,commission;
  cout << "Enter sale price: " << endl;
  cin >> price;
  commission = 0.075*price;
  cout << endl << "Your commission is " << commission << endl;
}

They are right, you need the ";" after "commission=0.075 * price".  

You will want to put an endl in apropriate places. This puts a CR/LF in and flushes the IO stream, otherwise your text might not appear on the monitor until the buffer fills up. It might not be a problem on this simple program, or with your current compiler and operating system, but you might get confused on bigger programs or if things change.  

Use "cout <<"\n Your commission is"<<commission << endl;"
and  

cout <<"Enter sale price"<< endl;

instead.  

ALSO, you COULD HAVE put the '\n' as part of the string instead of separately

 cout <<"Enter sale price\n";
