1. Adam earned a total of £265.10 last week.

Step-by-step explanation:

Step 1; Adam earns a basic pay of £200 each week. He earns 10% of the magazine price for each sold  and 15% of the book price for each sold. Each magazine costs £8 and each book costs £15. He sells 42 magazines and 14 books.

Money earned for selling a magazine = 10% × £8 = 0.10 × £8 = £0.80,

Money earned for selling a book = 15% × £15 = 0.15 × £15 = £2.25,

Money earned for selling 42 magazines = 42 × £0.80 = £33.60,

Money earned for selling 14 books = 14 × £2.25 = £31.50,

Money earned for selling 42 magazines and 14 books = £33.60 + £31.50 =  £65.10.

Step 2; Now we have to calculate his last week’s salary which is his weekly pay and his earnings from selling magazines and books. We found that he earned £31.50 from selling books and magazines. His weekly salary is £200.

Last week’s salary =  £200 +  £65.10 = £265.10.

Step-by-step explanation:

10% of 42 magazines

Magazines opcost £8

10% × £8 = 0.10 × £8 = £0.80

42 × £0.80 = £33.60

15% of 14 books

Each book cost £15

15% × £15 = 0.15 × £15 = £2.25,

14 × £2.25 = £31.50

Last Week’s Salary:

£31.50 + £33.60 = £65.10

£200 +  £65.10 = £265.10 (last weeks salary)
