I think 18% is above their usual earning rate

 

1.18 (4 weeks ) x  = 2800        where x is usual pay rate per week

x =  $  593 .22 /week

 

So if they usually earn 593.22 per week

      593.22 =  2372.88

          their loading bonus would be  2800- 2372.88 = 427.12   for 4 weeks ....= 106.78 bonus per week

Holiday pay is the usual pay plus the 18%

So all you need to do is add 18% on $2800

 

---

2800/100 = 1%

1% x 118 = Answer
