Textbook Problem

The Spring Creek Police Department has been asked to provide protection support for a visiting politician. If it has to provide 2 officers at the airport for motorcycle escort, 7 officers for intersection control along the planned route of travel, and 14 officers at the high school auditorium during the speech,

a. How many officers are to be assigned to the protection detail?

b. If each officer is to be paid $75 extra for this duty, what is the total officer payroll for the protection detail?

(a)

To determine

To calculate: How many officers are to be assigned to the protection detail if 2 officers are to be provided at airport, 7 officers for intersection control and 14 officers at the high school auditorium during the speech.

Explanation

Given Information:

2 officers are to be provided at airport, 7 officers for intersection control and 14 officers at the high school auditorium during the speech.

Formula used:

Steps for adding whole number,

Step 1: Line up the place values by writing the whole numbers in column- units, tens, hundreds, thousands, and so on.

Step 2: Starting from the right with the units column, add the digits in each column.

Step 3: Write the units digit and carry the tens digit to the top of the next column to the left, when the total in column is greater than 9.

Calculation:

Consider the provided data,

2 officers are to be provided at airport,

7 officers for intersection control and 14 officers at the high school auditorium during the speech

So total officers that are to be assigned will be,

14+7+2

So the expression becomes,

  14    7+  2        ¯

Consider the operation, and line up the place values:

   14    7+  2        ¯

(b)

To determine

To calculate: Total officer payroll for the protection detail, if each officer is to be paid $75 extra for his duty.
