# Deb O’Connell is an accounting professional earning a salary of $58,000 at her firm. What is her equivalent weekly gross pay? To determine To calculate: The equivalent weekly salary of Deb O’Connell, if his annual salary is$58,000.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided annual salary is $58,000. Formula used: To determine amount of gross pay per period. weekly pay = Annual Salary÷52 To divide whole numbers: Step 1: Select the group of digits in the dividend from left that the divisor divides at least once. After dividing put the partial quotient above the last digit in that group. Step 2: Multiply the divisor to the partial quotient. Write it below the selected group of digits and subtract. Step 3: Write down the next digit from the dividend which is after the selected group. Step 4: Repeat the above steps until all the digits in the dividend are divided. Calculation: Consider the annual salary is$58,000,

Now to find Deb’s weekly salary apply the formula and divide annual salary by 52,

First select the group of digits, 58 in the dividend from left that 52 divides at 1, and put the partial quotient 1 above the last digit of 58,

521      58000

Now multiply the divisor to the partial quotient 1 and write it below 58 and then subtract,

521      5840052_ 6

Now write down the next digit from the dividend,

521      5840052_ 64

Now repeat the above steps until all the digits in the dividend are divided,
