You work at a fastr food restaurant 5 days a week, 6 hours a day, and are paid \$840 every two weeks. Each hour you wrap 184 burgers. How many burgers will you have to wrap to make a million dollars? I got \$7142857 from the proportion:

\$1,000,000x 2 weeks/\$840 x 5 days/1 week x 6 hours/1 day. I feel like my answer is too low. Can you check my work please? Thanks.

• Chemistry -

You wrap how many in two weeks?
5*6*2*184 burgers
1000000/840=X/(5*6*2*184)

I get almost 13 million burgers.

This is chemistry???

In 60 hours you wrap 11,040 burgers. You receive \$840 for this work.

1,000,000 / 840 = 1190.4761 pay periods

1190.4761 * 11,040 = 13,142,856

Or doing it another way -- you earn \$0.076 per burger. 1,000,000 / 0.076 = 13,157, 894.7
