# Calculate last week’s total gross pay for each of the following employees. Employee Garments Produced Total Gross Pay Goodrich, P. 109 $433.00 To determine To calculate: The total gross pay of last week for Goodrich, P. who is a worker at Euro Couture, a manufacturer of women’s apparel and he produced 109 garments last week. He is paid on differential piecework schedule for per garment sewn as follows:  Pay Level Garments Produced Rate Per Garment 1 1-50$3.60 2 51-100 $4.25 3 101-150$4.50 4 Over 150 $5.10 Explanation Given Information: The provided differential piecework schedule for per garment sewn as follows.  Pay Level Garments Produced Rate Per Garment 1 1-50$3.60 2 51-100 $4.25 3 101-150$4.50 4 Over 150 $5.10 Formula used: To calculate gross pay by differential piecework: Step 1. Calculate the pay at each level by multiplying the output units and the rate per unit for that level. Level pay=Output quantity×Rate per unit Step 2. Calculate the total gross pay by adding the pays from each level. Calculation: To find total gross pay for Goodrich whose total number of garments produced is 109, calculate his pay by the pay schedule at level 1 for 50 garments, level 2 for 50 garments and level 3 for 9 garments as 109=50+50+9 and then add the totals. Now to calculate his level 1 pay, consider number of garments produced and rate per garment, 50 and$3.60

Apply the formula, Level pay=Output quantity×Rate per unit:

Level 1 pay=50×3.60

As,

3.60×     50_180.00__

So, Level 1 pay=$180.00. Now to calculate his level 2 pay, consider number of garments produced and rate per garment, 50 and$4.25

Apply the formula, Level pay=Output quantity×Rate per unit:

Level 2 pay=50×4.25

As,
