Ok..bit of a dilema going on here..
I have some numbers to crunch, trying to work it out for work purposes for somebody.. both of us are kinda struggling to get our head around a
here's the problem..
person is paid 6.25 an hour for a 6 hour day, 5 times a week and paid at the end of each month.
so far so good..
364 days in a year or 12 months or 52 weeks...
Now this is where we're getting lost..
6.25hrs X 6hr day X 5days X 4 weeks X12 months = 9000
6.25 X 6hrs X 5 days X 52 weeks = 9750
364 days minus 2 days each week = 260 days.
6.25 X 6 X 260 = 9750
how in the heck does that work out like that?
how can a monthly salary be lower than a weekly or daily salary which are the same?
Which do we use as a base when the person is paid monthly?
If I'm being real dumb then please point out where I'm going wrong.. seems daft to have two different results..
As a side note and a little twist to the thread.. which do you reckon the banks would use (and corporations) in order to evade taxes or hide money?..
if both are right...
thanks in advance from a low level maths/accounting noob
