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
