Let g represent the minimum amount of money Jamie needs to earn to pay his bills.
Jamie works part time at an accounting firm. He gets paid by the task: the more difficult the job, the more money he earns. Jamie needs to earn $875 to pay his bills. This week, he completed five tasks that paid $80, $75, $145, $250, and $80, respectively. Jamie has one more task to complete.
What is the minimum amount he needs to earn on his last task to pay his bills?
Let d represent time in days.
Ono opens a small seafood restaurant. Her start-up costs total $32,550. Each day, she spends $750 on operating costs. She earns $1125 per day in sales. When will Ono begin to make a profit?
Hey, I'm not going to be rude but can you leave your problems up instead of editing and deleting it after someone answers it? Thank you!
875 - [ 80 + 75 + 145 + 250 + 80 ] = $245 is what he needs
We want to find when Costs = Sales where d is the number of days it will take
32550 + 750d = 1125d subtract 750d from both sides
32550 = 375d divide both sides by 375
86.8 = d ≈ 87 days
