SOURCE: ratio and propotion

15 men earns 525
1 man raens 525/15
equals to 35

7 women earns 525
1 women earns 75

so 7 men and 13 women earns 7 *35+13*75=245+975=1220

So expected returns are just a little more advanced version of probability - without getting too in detail it uses weighted averages so you do not have to add the same number 17 times.
Let's first define our variables:
E(X) = Expected Return X1 = Variable 1 P1 = Probability 1 (in decimal format so 55% would be .55) X2 = Variable 2 P2 = Probability 2 (P2 is also equal to 1 - P1)
So the expected return formula is as follows:
E(X) = (X1)*(P1) + (X2)*(P2)
Plugging in our given numbers we get E(X) = Expected Return X1 = 300,000 P1 = 10% or .1 X2 = 40,000 P2 = 1 - P1 = 1 - .1 = .9
E(X) = (300,000)*(.1) + (40,000)*(.9) E(X) = 66,000
Now remember this does not include the opportunity cost of spending your four years in college studying biology instead of another degree.

SOURCE: Maxine earns a commission of

\$6000.00 x .03 = \$180.00 this is the first 6000.00 at 3% \$23,000.00 - \$6000.00 = \$17,000.00 This is the remainder after the first 6000.00 is removed. \$17,000.00 x .06 = \$1020.00 this is the remainder at 6% Now you did not mention if she gets a base per day pay or if she gets a hourly rate also. But in just the Commission pay she earned \$1200.00 Now I get 20% kick back for buying the 2 Droid's and the 2 Otter Boxes for them, thank you very much.

How much money does a swat officer get paid

How Much Money Do SWAT Police Earn
Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams are comprised of specially trained police officers who are sent into high-risk situations. In most instances, the wages of SWAT team members are the same as salaries for regular police officers. However, police departments typically pay a monthly or annual pay differential to members of the SWAT team.

SWAT Officers SWAT team officers are skilled marksmen trained to shoot long range targets with pinpoint accuracy. Trained snipers are also tasked with detecting and neutralizing threats posed to political figures at conventions and special events. These professionals often accompany regular patrol officers during confrontations involving organized crime figures or suspected terrorists. Most SWAT police are taught crowd control techniques to be used during riots or civil unrest. SWAT teams usually include negotiators who are tasked with resolving situations.
Base Salary According to a 2011 report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, police officers, including SWAT team members, have an average base salary of \$56,260 a year. Police officers in New Jersey are the highest paid in the nation with average salaries of \$81,970. Among metropolitan areas, the highest wages are paid to police officers in the Los Angeles, Glendale and Long Beach area of California. These officers earn an average annual salary of \$85,620.

Police Departments Most police officers work for state and local law enforcement agencies. The budgets and pay structures of police departments vary, as do the payments made to SWAT team members. In Brownsville, Texas, SWAT team members receive a flat annual fee of \$650 in addition to their base salaries. In Albuquerque, N.M., SWAT officers receive a \$50 monthly payment that amounts to \$600 a year in additional pay. In Riverside, Calif., full-time SWAT officers receive an additional payment that is equal to 3 percent of their base salaries.
Additional Pay Members of the SWAT team can potentially generate extra income by taking on additional responsibilities. In Round Rock, Texas and in Albuquerque, negotiators receive an annual payment of \$600. Many SWAT team members provide firearms training to other officers, and a police officer in Round Rock can earn an additional \$2,400, per year for working as a trainer. SWAT officers can further boost their pay if they are bilingual, are trained to defuse, or agree to work night shifts or special assignments.

What is the difference between independent and dependent variable

Independent means that it does not depend on, does not rely on, is not affected by anything. A dependent variable is a variable is affected by some other variable. If. the independent variable happens to change its value, the dependent variable must comply and change also according to the rule that connects the two variables.
An example of independent variable is time. It runs its course, not affected by anything else.
Maybe a money example will be more transparent.
Suppose you have a part-time job to support you in your studies. In a part-time job, the number of weekly work hours is not fixed in advance. Some weeks you are relatively free and can work more hours. Other weeks you have exams and can't do as much.

Let us consider the situation: your weekly salary. You understand that your weekly salary will vary in relation to the total number of hours you work during a given week. The more you work, the more you earn. The less you work, the less you earn.
Clearly there is a link between the number of work hours, and the weekly salary. You have two quantities that vary from week to week. They vary: so they are called variables (variable= capable of varying/changing its value).
The two variables are x= number of hours worked in a given week, and y= weekly salary earned in the same given week.
You and only you can decide of your own free will on the number of hours you will work that week. However, once you choose/decide how many hours you will work, your salary is calculated according to a set rule your boss and yourself had agreed to.
Of the two variables in the situation describing you weekly salary, the number x of hours worked is the independent variable. The weekly salary y is the dependent variable: the amount of money you get depends on/ is decided by the number of hours you worked.

Please use a dictionary to see the meaning of the verb to depend on, and the adjectives dependent, independent.

You give up a full-time salary of \$45,000 a year to go to school for 2 years. The total cost of going to school is \$30,000. If you want to be able to recover your investment in 5 years or less, what is the...

Your 'investment' consists 2 years loss of 45k and a further 30k = 75k
if you work for the next 5 years you would need to earn 75k more than whatever your wages were without the qualification. That's an extra 15k a year.
None of this allows for tax or inflation, and is a gross over-simplification of events.

Inflation & business maths!

The formula that would have been used to increase his salary each year probably was: Original Salary * (100% + inflation) = New Salary

Rearranging this, we get: Original Salary = New Salary / (100% + inflation)

So...

Last Year: 42000 / 102% = 41176.47 = 41176 (rounded)
2 Years Ago: 41176.47 / 103% = 39977.16 = 39977 (rounded)
