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.
