Max works 40 hours per week as a tire store manager. If he made $25,480 last year, how much was he paid per hour?
To figure this out, we need to write down some rules/formulas. Max works 40 hours per week. There are 52 weeks within a year. He made $25,480 last year, and now we're looking for how much he made per hour. Since we have 52 weeks in a year, divide 25,480 by 52 to get how much he made per week. Once we do that, divide that quotient by 40 to get how much he made per hour. 25,480/52 = 490. He made $490 per week, but now we must divide by 40 to get how much he made per hour, since we have 40 hours. 490/40 = 12.25 Max made $12.25 per hour. I hope this helps!
