Your company needs to temporarily hire a programmer to work on a project. Two proposed payment schemes for this work are as follows:
• (1) A flat fee of $1,000, plus $20 per hour or (2) $25 per hour.
o For each of the two plans, show an expression that can be used to compute the amount of pay for that plan. The variable should be the number of hours worked.
o Set up and solve an inequality that would enable your company to determine possible job lengths (in hours) for which the person is paid less according to plan 1 than for plan 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.125x < y < 1000 + 20x That might be a formula for plan two

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Actually, I think you have to solve each for x and then write the inequality.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But we can actually do it ourselves and find the exact number of hours it would take. Let's first write each in terms of x...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x = (y  1000)/20 x = y/25 y/25 < x < (y  1000)/20 x = x 25(y  1000) = 20(y) 25y  25000 = 20y 5y = 25000 y = 25000/5 y = 5000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So 200 hours is the point at which everything switches as far as the plans go. If you go over 200 hours, then the plans will likely switch.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since he's only temporary, he might pick the first plan. He might not get to 200 hours.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It will take him 25 days to get to 200 hours.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, if he plans to work there for over a month, he should pick plan 2. For less than a month, stick with the first plan.
