Angela takes a job starting with an hourly wage of ₱3.50 and is promised a raise of ₱5.00 per hour per two months for 5 years. At the end of 5 years, what would be Angela’s hourly wage?
This is the problem our teacher gave us in class (although I changed the name to Angela, it doesn't matter much hahaha). I am confused whether the answer is ₱148.50 or ₱153.50.
Our teacher made it a point that the phrase "at the end of 5 years" is important in determining the correct answer in the problem.
What is the correct answer (with solution) to this problem?
We have finally agreed that it is ambiguous and the answer may be ₱148.50 or ₱153.50 depending on one's understanding of the problem. In her own understanding, she believes it is ₱148.50.
Thank you everyone for your support and cooperation. 'Till the next time :D
