Comparing Two Salary Structures

PROBLEM SITUATION:

You have two job offers. Job 1 has an annual starting salary of $60,000 with the expectation of a $1000 raise each year. Job 2 has an annual starting salary of $45,000 and expectation of a 7.5% annual raise.

(3pts) 1. Tables of future annual salaries can be used to begin to compare the two job offers. Copy the following tables into your report and complete them. Round to the nearest dollar.

Job 1: Annual Salary

Job 2: Annual Salary

(1 pt ea) 2. Write the answers to questions a, b, and c using complete sentences. For question d, just write the function rule.

a. In which table are the successive differences constant?

b. What is that constant difference?

c. What type of function can be used to model this salary offer?

d. Write the function rule that gives the annual salary after t years on the job.

(1 pt ea) 3. Write the answers to questions a, b, and c using complete sentences. For question d, just write the function rule.

a. In which table are the successive ratios constant?

b. What is that constant ratio?

c. What type of function can be used to model this salary offer?

d. Write the function rule that gives the annual salary after t years on the job.

(4pts) 4. Use your calculator to produce, in the same window, the graphs of both salary functions (From questions 2d and 3d) over the domain 0 to 100 years and a range 0 to 130,000

You can take a picture of your graph with your phone. Email a copy of the picture to yourself. Print the picture and add to the end of your project. I will not accept hand-drawn graphs.

(4pts) 5. Use your graphing calculator to determine the number of years must you work in order for the annual salary of Job 2 to equal the corresponding annual salary of Job 1? You can take a picture of your graph with your phone. Email a copy of the picture to yourself. Print the picture and add to the end of your project. I will not accept hand-drawn graphs. How many years must you work to have the annual salary of Job 1 to equal Job 2?

(1pts) 6a. What equation can be solved to find the number of years it will take to double the starting salary for Job 1?

(2pts) b. Solve the equation algebraically (show the steps).

(4pts) c. Check your solution from part b graphically. Using your smartphone, take a picture of the graph from your calculator. You can take a picture of your graph with your phone. Email a copy of the picture to yourself. Print the picture and add to the end of your project. I will not accept hand-drawn graphs.

(1pts) d. Write your solution in sentence form.

(2pts) 7a.What equation can be solved to find the number of years it will take to double the starting salary for Job 2?

(4pts) b. Solve the equation graphically. You can take a picture of your graph with your phone. Email a copy of the picture to yourself. Print the picture and add to the end of your project. I will not accept hand-drawn graphs.

(1pts) c. Write your solution in sentence form.

(4pts) 8. In comparing the earning power of the job offers, one might be interested in the cumulative earnings, that is, the sum total earnings for all the years worked in the chosen job. TABLE 3 below gives cumulative earnings for both job offers for the given number of years worked. For example, when t = 8, the table gives. That means, after working 8 years in Job 1, the total earnings is $508,000.

Note that the last column gives a comparison of the cumulative earnings of both jobs for the same number of years worked by calculating the difference.

Complete the table below.

TABLE 3

Comparison of Cumulative Earnings

t = # of Years Worked

= Cumulative Earnings after t years on Job 1

= Cumulative Earnings after t years on Job 2

Difference in Cumulative Earnings:

(1pts) 9a. The ordered pair occurs in the TABLE 1. Explain the meaning of this ordered pair in the context of the situation.

(1pts) b. The ordered pair occurs in the TABLE 3. Explain the meaning of this ordered pair in the context of the situation.

(1pts) c. The ordered pair occurs in the TABLE 3. Explain the meaning of this ordered pair in the context of the situation.

(2pts) 10 How many years must you work in order for the cumulative salary of Job 2 to be higher than the cumulative salary for Job 1? Explain how TABLE 3 gives this information.

How it Works

  1. Clіck оn the “Place оrder tab at the tоp menu оr “Order Nоw” іcоn at the bоttоm, and a new page wіll appear wіth an оrder fоrm tо be fіlled.
  2. Fіll іn yоur paper’s іnfоrmatіоn and clіck “PRІCE CALCULATІОN” at the bоttоm tо calculate yоur оrder prіce.
  3. Fіll іn yоur paper’s academіc level, deadlіne and the requіred number оf pages frоm the drоp-dоwn menus.
  4. Clіck “FІNAL STEP” tо enter yоur regіstratіоn detaіls and get an accоunt wіth us fоr recоrd keepіng.
  5. Clіck оn “PRОCEED TО CHECKОUT” at the bоttоm оf the page.
  6. Frоm there, the payment sectіоns wіll shоw, fоllоw the guіded payment prоcess, and yоur оrder wіll be avaіlable fоr оur wrіtіng team tо wоrk оn іt.

Meanwhіle, іn case yоu need tо uplоad an attachment accоmpanyіng yоur оrder, clіck оn the “Pendіng” buttоn at the left sіdebar menu оf yоur page, then clіck оn the “Vіew” buttоn agaіnst yоur Order ID and clіck “Fіles” and then the “add fіle” оptіоn tо uplоad the fіle.

Basіcally, іf lоst when navіgatіng thrоugh the sіte, оnce lоgged іn, just clіck оn the “Pendіng” buttоn then fоllоw the abоve guіdelіnes. оtherwіse, cоntact suppоrt thrоugh оur chat at the bоttоm rіght cоrner

NB

Payment Prоcess

By clіckіng ‘PRОCEED TО CHECKОUT’ yоu wіll be lоgged іn tо yоur accоunt autоmatіcally where yоu can vіew yоur оrder detaіls. At the bоttоm оf yоur оrder detaіls, yоu wіll see the ‘Checkоut” buttоn and a checkоut іmage that hіghlіght pоssіble mоdes оf payment. Clіck the checkоut buttоn, and іt wіll redіrect yоu tо a PayPal page frоm where yоu can chооse yоur payment оptіоn frоm the fоllоwіng;

  1. Pay wіth my PayPal accоunt‘– select thіs оptіоn іf yоu have a PayPal accоunt.
