A company gives a bonus of 12 ½ % of the total yearly salary to each of its employees during a year.If an employee gets a monthly salary of $2000,how much does he get?   

Basic idea:

In this problem a company is giving bonus 12 ½ % of the total yearly salary to each of its employees in the year.If an employee gets a monthly salary of $2000,what will be the amount he get.To solve this problem we have to find  12 ½ % of total yearly salary.For that first we have to find the total salary.Here monthly salary is 2000. We have 12 months. So we have to multiply 12 with 2000.

Solution:

Salary of the employee  =   $2000

The employee's total salary for the year   =  12 x 2000

                                                        =  24000


Worth of bonus  =  12 ½ %  x Yearly salary

                      =   12 ½ %  x 24000

First let us change this mixed fraction into improper fraction.

                      =  (24+1)/2 % x 24000

                      =  (25/2) /100 x 24000

                      =  (25/200) x 24000

                      =  (25 x 24000)/200

                      =   (25 x 240)/2

                      =   (25 x 120)

                      =   $3000  

Bonus amount got by the employee = $ 3000.
