    Bonus Calculation

    I need to calculate bonuses for my employees based on participation on a particular project and embarrassingly enough, it won't come to me this morning.

    Example:

    Total bonus $400

    employee 1 100% participation
    employee 2 95% participation
    employee 3 30% participation
    employee 4 70% participation
    employee 5 10% participation

    employee 5 10% participation

    1. 400

    2. .95\cdot400

    3. .30\cdot400

    4..........

    That will give you how much you should give to each.

    Assuming each employee starts out with a potential bonus of 400.

    If you are to spred the 400 around, that's different

    No problem

    Let x be the amount that the person who participated the least is to get, then

    x+3x+7x+9.5x+10x=400

    30.5x=400

    x=\frac{400}{30.5}

    Can you proceed?
