I think that I am starting to understand now. I am interrupting the question incorrectly. I am wanting the solution for the $25,000/year ( 1/4 * $100,000/year) for 10 years and that would be...
Why would you ignore the units in this so called "silly" question?
I made up the question so that someone could explain how the year units cancel. I cannot make sense of any of the replies. Can you try again and explain what the correct reply/answer is and why? ...
I am still confused. It seems like a simple solution to be determined, but the answers seem to be totally confusing.

I want to thank you for for indicating this error to me! I have the more accurate version below:

I'm not sure that I understand your reply. Can you elaborate more?
An executive receives a severance pay of one fourth of his annual salary of $100,000.00. for 10 years. How much would he receive annually?
0.25 * $100,000/year * 10 years = $250,000.00
Would...
Thank you for your explanation:
I now want to understand the calculation as follows:
1.1%/year * $30,705.17 * 33 years
or
1.1% *$30,705.17/year * 33 years
Thanks for the reply!
I am mostly interested in the dimensional analysis of the problem. I can determine the monthly amount, but I am not sure how the 'year' units cancel. Can it be determined...
1. What to you mean "In other words, your problem is probably faulty...as usual!!" ?
2. Would the amount, $11,145.97... be divided by 12 months not 12 months/year?
3. Why not 12 months/year?
A company uses the following calculation to determine the monthly payment for its employees as they retire:
1.1% * average 5 years highest salary * years of service
If an employee worked 33...
That is a nice, concise solution, but the 1200 cubic feet need to be used in your solution in order to get the answer 1920 cubic feet.
1200 cubic feet + ($2.88/$0.40 * 100) = 720 cubic feet +...
I have another calculation regarding the cubic feet question. Is it mathematically logical?
1200 cubic feet + ($9.38-$6.50)/($0.40/100 cubic feet * 3600 cubic feet) * 3600 cubic feet = 1920 cubic...
Thank you for your reply and solution!
There is a typographical error that you overlooked. The $0.04 should be $0.40. I could not get you solution to produce the correct answer until I realized...
For one quarter, a home owner's water bill was $9.38. The water company charges $6.50 for the first 1,200 cubic feet or less, and $0.40 per hundred for the next 3,600 cubic feet. How many cubic feet...
I think that "$0.25/quarter/share" is confusing and complicated. Usually there are just two units involved in many situations: 50 miles/gallon as an example. With $0.25/quarter/share, this becomes...
Yes, how time flies!
Same topic different question.
I think that you complicated it. I really do not understand your solution to my question. Could you try again using a complete calculation...
Would the following be correct?
50 shares/quarter X $0.25/share X 4 quarters/year
The 50 shares/quarter does not look correct or accurate.

Can a model have a scale of 2/25, for example, where the numerator is not "1"? What would this scale indicate?

In the linear scale, Model:Reality::1:72
If I wanted to express this in writing using inches as the unit of measure would the follow be correct?

Is your answer the same as Model/Reality = 1/72?
You just used a proportion to define the scale size (1/72) to the model and the actual object and the word "Reality" is the same as the actual...
