A generous owner of a company decided to give a bonus of $45 to every man and $60 to every woman on his birthday. But only one ninth of the men and one twelfth of woman were present to take the bonus.

Can you calculate the amount of money the owner spent if there were 3552 employees ?

Hard Math Question

17,760

Let us assume that there are x male employees.
No. of female employees will be (3553 – x)
One ninth of men = x/9 who received $45
And one twelfth of the women = (3553 – x) /12 who received $60

Thus total received = (45 * (x / 9)) + (60 * (3552 - x) / 12)
= 5 * 3552
= $17,760
