Margaret has been there the second longest and makes $50,000 a year. Joseph has worked there four years less than Frank and one year more than William. He makes $60,000 a year. William’s pay is twice as much as Margaret’s. Jeffrey has worked there three years less than William and his income is three-quarters of Margaret’s. How much is Frank's annual salary?

  1. just start writing down the data.

    Frank = 3*Jeff
    Marg = 50
    Joe = 60
    Will = 2*Marg
    Jeff = 3/4 Marg

    Frank = 3(Jeff) = 3(3/4 Marg) = 3(3/4(50)) = 450/4 = 112.5

    So, Frank makes $112,500
