A student is offered two different summer jobs. Job A lasts 16 weeks and pays $450.00 per week. Job B lasts 4 months and pays $1,600.00 per month, with monthly raises of 15% of the previous month's salary. How much more does the student earn by accepting Job B (rounded to the nearest cent)?

16 weeks x $450 per week =$7,200 - total pay for job A

 

$1,600  +  $1,840  +  $2,116  +  $2,433.4 =$7,989.4 - total pay for job B

 

$7,989.40 - $7,200 =$789.40 - extra that the student will earn by accepting job B
