**hurrdurrbeedooda**, Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 1:05amLet x = part - time staff

Total cost for full-time workers =

350 * 8 = 2800

2800 + 250x = 5000

250x = 5000 - 2500

x = 8.8

Since I have not met 4/5'ths of a person we would have to either round up or down. Since the daily wage cannot exceed $5000 we will round down to 8.

Therefore they can hire 8 part time workers and 8 full time workers without exceeding daily wage cap.

Therefore Total cost is: 2800 + 250(8) =4800

$2000 to part time workers

$2800 to full time workers.

Change 250x = 5000 - 2500

to: 250x = 5000 - 2800
