Answer: 540 million

Tutor Answer

School: Purdue University

Participation rate =75%

Non participation rate =25%

25% =200 million

100% = 800 million

Participation labor force = 800*0.75 =600

Unemployment rate =10%

Employed =600*(0.9) = 540 million

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
