Q:
# 1. A person worked 3 hours and earned $18,000. How much will he earn working 8 hours?
a) $48,000
b) $52,000
c) $56,000
d) $60,000

Accepted Solution

A:

To find the person's earnings for 8 hours of work, we can set up a proportion based on the given information.
We know that the person earned $18,000 for 3 hours of work. Let's call the earnings for 8 hours x.
We can set up the proportion:
3 hours / $18,000 = 8 hours / x
To find x, we can cross-multiply and solve for it:
3x = 8 * $18,000
3x = $144,000
x = $144,000 / 3
x = $48,000
Therefore, the person will earn $48,000 for 8 hours of work.
The correct option is a) $48,000.
