## kgray5 2 years ago I need to find a calculation for the following: actor makes $1000 every 4 minutes and 48 seconds, todays taping runs for 4 hours and 15 minutes... • This Question is Closed 1. Nikhil619 ok so do u know how to start? 2. monokerous you could change everything to a standard unit(e.g. seconds) 3. kgray5 ya that is what i tried and obviously its not working for me 4. monokerous Try working it out again. After you've gotten the total number of seconds that he works, divide it by [(4*60)+48] then multiply the answer by 1000. 5. monokerous Remember, with hours, you need to times 3600(or 60*60) 6. monokerous Since first you need to convert to minutes, then seconds. 7. kgray5 would the typical equation be typed out as $1000\div4 mins 48 seconds (all written \in seconds)=x \div4 hours 15 mins written \in seconds?$ 8. monokerous Yes. That looks about right. 9. kgray5 ok im still clueless 10. kgray5 4 min 48 sec=14400 in sec right? 11. monokerous What's (4*60)+48? 12. kgray5 ok there is my 288 13. monokerous yes. 14. monokerous Now you want to convert 4hrs 15mins into seconds. 15. kgray5 ok now to calculate the other is where im falling short at the answer to the prob is$53,125.00

16. kgray5

yes

17. monokerous

what do you get in seconds after converting 4hrs 15mins?

18. monokerous

To make it easier, (4*60*60)+(15*60)

19. kgray5

ok that is what i got

20. monokerous

so what's the answer for that? we're not done yet. we still have two more steps after this.

21. kgray5

he answer fof the above prob is 15300 t

22. monokerous

yes. Now, take 15300 and divide by 288. Then, multiply by 1000.

23. kgray5

upy

24. kgray5

25. kgray5
