A small factory employs 7 experienced and 5 inexperienced workers. The mean monthly wage of these 12 workers is \$700. Given that the mean monthly wage of 5 inexperienced workers is \$602, calculate the mean wage of the 7 experienced workers.

• Math -

solve
7x + 5(602) = 12(700)

• Math -

7x + 5(602) = 12(700)
7x + 3010 = 8400
7x = 8400 - 3010
7x = 5390
x = 5390/7
x = 770
