SITE-A teams: Lesson 9

 

The hourly wage at a fast food restaurant starts at $4.75 per hour with $0.25 increments after each subsequent year of working experience at the restaurant. Hourly employees can work only 37.5 hours per week, do not get paid vacations, and work 52 weeks per year.

Can you develop a table that shows at each stage of a nine year employment period what an employee earns each week and each year?

Let X represent the wage per hour, let Y1 be the weekly income, and let Y2 be the yearly income.
