solution of Suppose compensation is given by W = 500,000 + 200 π + 17S, where W = total compensation of the CEO, π = company profits (in millions) = $300, and S = sales (in millions) = $500. What percentage of the CEO's total earnings is tied to profits of the firm?

How could the CEO's salary be:  W = 500,000 + 200 π + 17S

=500,000 + [200*$300,000,000] + [17*$500,000,000]

=$68,500,500,000 !!!!!! Do you see the mistake????

Season’s greets, Mr. BB:

There is nothing wrong with this Yule time question.  It does require advanced, grade-school mathematics skills to answer it, though.

 

 

\(500000 + \underbrace{ (200*300)}_{\scriptsize \text{Portion tied to profits}} + (17*500) = 568500 \\ \dfrac{(200*300)}{568500} = 0.1055 =10.6 \mathbf{\%} \)

I can see your answer is correct but our guest's error is easily made.
