Question

There is a cloth factory in which workers are given Rs 765 as a daily wage.
Every day the cloth factory produces 1791 m length of cloth.
i) The length of cloth required to make a shirt is 3 m. How many shirts can be made from the cloth produced in one day?
ii) What length of cloth will be manufactured in 29 working days?
iii) What will be the salary of a worker for 4 weeks if Sunday is considered a day off?

1. The number of shirts produced in one day is 597, the length of cloth manufactured is 51,939 m, and the salary of a worker for 4 weeks is Rs 18,360.

### How is the salary of a worker calculated?

i) The number of shirts that can be made from the cloth produced in one day can be calculated as follows:
Number of shirts produced in one day = Length of cloth produced daily / Length of cloth required to make a shirt = 1791 / 3 = 597 shirts
ii) The length of cloth that will be manufactured in 29 working days can be calculated as follows:
Length of cloth manufactured = 1791 * 29 = 51,939 m
iii) The salary of a worker for 4 weeks can be calculated as follows:
Salary of a worker for 4 weeks = ((Number of days in a week * 4) – 4 Sundays) * Daily wage ……………………. (1)
Substituting the relevant values into equation (1), we have:
Salary of a worker for 4 weeks = ((7 * 4) – 4 ) *  765 =  Rs 18,360
