Calculate the total holiday pay, to the nearest cent, for a worker who is given a holiday loading of 18% of 4 weeks normal pay, and earns:

$2800 in 4 weeks

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
