To determine

**To calculate:** The total gross pay of last week for Fox, B. who is a worker at Euro Couture, a manufacturer of women’s apparel and he produced 174 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.

Step 2. Calculate the total gross pay by adding the pays from each level.

**Calculation:**

To find total gross pay for Fox whose total number of garments produced is 174, calculate his pay by the pay schedule at level 1 for 50 garments, level 2 for 50 garments, level 3 for 50 garments and level 4 for 24 garments as

Now to calculate his level 1 pay, consider number of garments produced and rate per garment,

50 and $3.60

Apply the formula,

As,

So,

Now to calculate his level 2 pay, consider number of garments produced and rate per garment,

50 and $4.25

Apply the formula,

As,

So,

Now to calculate his level 3 pay, consider number of garments produced and rate per garment,

50 and $4.50

Apply the formula,
