A union worker made $500 per week. His union sought a one year contract and went on strike. Once the new contract was approved, it provided a 4% raise. Assume that the worker was not paid during the strike. Given his raise in salary how many weeks could he strike and still make at least as much for the next 52 weeks as he would have made without a strike?

500(1.04)(52)=500x . Solve for x. Then, x-52 = how many weeks he could strike.

54.08 is how many weeks he would work at the $500 rate to equal 52 weeks at the new rate.
