USA Today reported that a survey showing a starting salary for a person with a degree in computer science was expected to be close to $38,000 (rounded to the nearest thousand). This is approximately a 1 ¼ times greater than a starting salary of a person with a business degree. What should be the starting salary for a person with a business degree? Round to the nearest thousand.

1 1/4 =    125 %

 

125 %  of 'x' = 38000     where 'x' is the business degree starting salary

1.25 x  = 38000

x = 38000/1.25 = $ 30400
