McDonald’s franchises. The following data are taken from those 1,116 McDonald’s.

The rest are restaurant workers.

Total employees 20 years old and under: 34,241

your result from question 4, howmuchwould that cost each franchise?

6. What would the total cost of the $125 bonus be for all of the employees?
