This is answer is ri

Please guys help me,,, I don't understand where to start & where to finish

O bhai koeee hai.. Kisi aur ko bhi ye assignment mili hai k sirf mujhay hi mili hai

I am not sure whether this solution is correct or not, so plz! plz! plz! friends help me & guide to solve this assignment.

Question 1

Mr. X

Wages Rate per Hour Rs. 20

Time allowed for the job 50 hours

Time Taken 55 hours

Total Earning 55 x 20 = 1,100.00

Mr. Y

Wages Rate per Hour Rs. 20

Time allowed for the job 50 hours

Time Taken 40 hours

Total Earning 40 x 20 = 8,00.00

Mr. Z

Wages Rate per Hour Rs. 20

Time allowed for the job 50 hours

Time Taken 15 hours

Total Earning 15 x 20 = 300.00

Question 2

Mr. X

Bonus Rate= Time allowed – Actual Time taken x 100

Time Allowed

= 50-55 x 100


Bonus Rate= -10%

Gross Earning

Basic Pay 55 x 20 = 1,100

Bonus Pay 1,100x -10% = -110


Effective Rate of Earning = 990 /55 hours = Rs. 18

Mr. Y

Bonus Rate= Time allowed – Actual Time taken x 100

Time Allowed

= 50-40 x 100


Bonus Rate= 20%

Gross Earning

Basic Pay 40 x 20 = 800

Bonus Pay 800 x 20% = 160


Effective Rate of Earning = 960 /40 hours = Rs. 24

Mr. Z

Bonus Rate= Time allowed – Actual Time taken x 100

Time Allowed

= 50-15 x 100


Bonus Rate= 70%

Gross Earning

Basic Pay 15 x 20 = 300

Bonus Pay 300x 70% = 210


Effective Rate of Earning = 510 /15 hours = Rs. 34

Any body can guide how to use the time rate .

Nadia aap ne bonus rate ko basic pay se direct multiply ker diya... jab k question main tu ye kaha hai k for 1st 10% saving in time ho agar tu 20% of time saved bonus dena hai yani 10% saving in time is 50 x 10/100 = 5 hours jis ki amount bani 5 x 20 = Rs. 100 phir is ka 20% bonus dena hai jo k Rs. 20 aata hai aur per unit bonus 20/5 = Rs. 4 hai.

Aur phir isi tarah 30% saving in time

15 hours @ Rs. 20 = Rs. 300 x 40% = Rs. 120 Bonus Amount

Bounus Amount per Hour = 120/15= Rs. 8

Aur phir isi tarah 20% saving in time

10 hours @ Rs. 20 = Rs. 200 x 30% = Rs. 60 Bonus Amount

Bounus Amount per Hour = 60/10= Rs. 6

Aur finally isi tarah Balance 40% saving in time

20 hours @ Rs. 20 = Rs. 400 x 5% = Rs. 20 Bonus Amount

Bounus Amount per Hour = 20/20= Re. 1

can you please upload the final solution so i can tally with mine and do the changes

final solution meray mutabiq jo banta hai wo page # 1 per Jpeg format main , main ne upload ker diya hai.. Lakin mujhay bhi believe nahein k whether is it correct or not

Question 3

It attributes the job losses to employers increasing prices to deal with the higher wages , which would lower demand and therefore their need more workers as well as to some employers substituting machines or technology for workers  due to the higher cost of wages .

But business may respond to a higher and policy research, john Schmitt argues that they can benefit from improved efficiency and lower turnover a higher wages may lead employers to push ,the majority to work harder ,which can be preferable to cutting hours or workers . in fact ,the majority of fast food restaurants in Georgia and Alabama said they would respond to a minimum wages increase with higher performance standards . 

According to my knowledge my solution is as follow

Total earning of MR X

Working completion hours Mr. X is = 55

But fixed for job only 50hours @ 20

So he will be paid 50x20                = Rs.1000


Total earning of MR Y

Working hours(40) wages 40x20 = 800

His Working hours 40 out of 50hours

Saving in time 10hr out of 50hr so, = 50x40/100= 20% saving of time

First 10% saving hours        = 5x04 = Rs.20

For next 10% saving hours = 5x08 = Rs.40


Wages for working hours= 800

Add bonus of Rs.              =     60

  Total earning of Mr Y     = 860


Total earning of MR Z

wages 15hoursx20 = 300

His Working hours 15 out of 50hours

Saving in time 35hr out of 50hr so, = 35x100/50= 70% saving of time

First 10% saving hours = 5x04 =           Rs.20

For next 30% saving hours = 15x08 = Rs.120

For next 20% saving hours = 10x06 = Rs.60

For balance (10%)out of 70%=5x01= Rs. 05

                                 Bonus              Rs.205

Wages for working hours= 300

Add bonus of Rs.              =  205

 Total earning of Mr Z     = 505
