Person at work (telemarket)  makes a $3 Bonus for making $60 per hour AVG. On Friday (last work day) the person is at $55 per hr AVG with 1hr left. 45 minutes into the hour, person makes $75, and clocks out. How much more would that $55 dollar amount would go up? and why/how! Please help

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

in 23 hrs he will have made 55*23=1265 dollars

In 45 min =75 dollars

total earnings=1265+78= $1343

Avarage= 1343/24

= $55.9583

It will go up by 55.9583-55.00= $ 0.9583

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

What if the person only spent 18 hrs total on the phone!!

Jun 22nd, 2015

If 18 hrs then 55*17=935

the last 1 hr=75 + bonus of 3=78

total income=1013

average=1013/18=56.2778

difference=$1.2778
