Question

I have a job that pays me 40 dollars an hour. However, it’s far away and I pay $250 a week on gas. I have another job that’s closer, but it only pays 25 dollars an hour and I only spend 100 dollars on gas a week. What should I do? Use math to support your answer. (Calculate this problem on a monthly basis. On both jobs, he would work 160 hours per month.) Answers 1. Hello, I hope you and your family are doing well! To compare the two jobs and determine which one is more financially advantageous, you need to calculate the total income and total expenses for each job on a monthly basis. For the first job, the total income is 40 dollars per hour * 160 hours per month = 6400 dollars per month. The total expenses are 250 dollars per week * 4 weeks per month = 1000 dollars per month. The net income is 6400 dollars per month – 1000 dollars per month = 5400 dollars per month. For the second job, the total income is 25 dollars per hour * 160 hours per month = 4000 dollars per month. The total expenses are 100 dollars per week * 4 weeks per month = 400 dollars per month. The net income is 4000 dollars per month – 400 dollars per month = 3600 dollars per month. Based on these calculations, the first job is more financially advantageous because it has a higher net income. You would earn an additional 1800 dollars per month by working the first job instead of the second job. —– Please consider giving this 5 stars and brainliest if you find this helpful. Happy Holidays!

Step-by-step explanation: If 1 month = 4 weeks: 40 x 40 = 1600 per week 40 x 160 = 6400 per month 250 per week on gas 250 x 4 = 1000 per month on gas 1600 – 250 = 1350 6400 – 1000 = 5400 You would earn$1350 per week on the first job, and $5400 on this job. _____________________________________________________ 25 x 160 = 4000 per month 25 x 40 = 1000 per week 100 per week on gas 100 x 4 = 400 per month on gas 1000 – 100 = 900 4000 – 400 = 3600$900 per week on the second job, and \$3600 per month on this job.
