Calculate Period Salary Earnings
Annual salary of \$55,000. Payroll is semimonthly. 55000 / 24 = Monthly salary of \$4,000. Payroll is bi-weekly. 4000 x 12 / 26 = Monthly salary of \$ Payroll is weekly. 3600 x 12 / 52 =

Hourly Rate of Pay; Calculation of Overtime
Gross pay = Hours Employee worked x Rate per hour Hourly overtime pay rate = Regular hourly pay rate x 1.5 Gross pay = Earnings for 40 hours + Earnings at time-and-a-half rate

Calculate Total Earnings--Hourly
Jessica earns \$10.50 per hour. During this weekly pay period she worked 46 hours. What is her gross pay? 10.50 x 40 + (10.50 x 1.5 x 6) = = Jason earns \$13.25 per hour. During this bi-weekly pay period he worked 90 hours. What is his gross pay? 13.25 x 80 + (13.25 x 1.5 x 10) = =

Straight Piece Rate Pay; Differential Pay Schedule
Gross pay = Number of units produced x Various rates per unit Straight Piece Rate Pay Gross pay = Number of units produced x Rate per unit Units Amount produced per unit 1-50 \$1.00 Over Rob produced 225 widgets. He is paid \$1.25 per widget. Calculate his gross pay (50 x \$1.00) +(150 x \$1.50)+(25 x \$1.75) = \$318.75 225 x \$1.25 = \$281.25

Calculate Earnings—Piece rate
Bob paints widgets. For each widget he paints during the workday he receives 75 cents. During one week Bob painted 825 widgets. How much did Bob earn? 825 x .75 = Carol is a widget tester. She is paid according to a schedule (p. 224). During one week, Carol tests 350 widgets. How much did Carol earn? 50 x .50 = 100 x .62 = 50 x .75 = 150 x 1.25 =

Straight Commission with Draw
Larry is paid a straight commission of 8%. His computer net sales were \$100,000. Larry’s draw was \$750. What is his gross pay? Commission is a certain percentage of the amount a salesperson sells. Draw is an advance on the salesperson’s commission (\$100,000 x .08) = \$8,000 -750 \$7,250 Commission amount = (Sales x rate) - Draw

Calculate Commission with Draw
Marlo is a real estate agent who works on straight commission. During one month, Marlo sold \$385,000 of real estate, and received a 2.5% commission. Marlo also receives an expense draw of \$250 twice a month. What is the amount of net commissions she will receive. x .025 = – =

Variable Commission Scale
Different commission rates for different levels of net sales Up to \$25, % Excess of \$25,001 to \$40, % Over \$40, % Juanita’s net sales were \$120,000. What is her gross pay based on the schedule? (\$25,000 x .05) + (\$15,000 x .07) + (\$80,000 x .08) = \$8,700

Calculate Commission—variable scale
Up to \$25, % Excess of \$25,001 to \$40, % Over \$40, % Ryan is a widget salesperson. During one month Ryan sold \$66,500 of widgets. What is his gross earnings? \$25000 x .05 = \$1,250 \$15000 x .07 = \$1,050 \$26500 x .08 = \$ 2,120 \$66, \$4,420

Salary Plus Commission
Gross Pay = Salary + Commission Chung receives a salary of \$2,500 per month. He also receives a 5% commission for sales over \$15,000. Last month’s sales were \$75,000. Calculate Chung’s gross pay. \$2,500 + (\$60,000 x .05) = \$5,500
