Profit from Sunday to Thursday
= 600*3*5 (3 sifts of 8hrs each in 24hrs and 5 days from sunday to thursday)
= 15*600 = \$9000

Profit from Friday and Saturday
Shift profit = 25% greater than the shfit profit from Sunday to thursday = 600 + 600 *25% = 600 *(1 + 0.25 ) = 600*1.25 = 750
Total profit in Friday and Sat = 750 * 3 * 2 = 750 * 6 = \$4500

Total profit for the week = \$9000 + \$4500 = \$13,500
Hope it helps!

Hey there! What can I say , I actually do not trust slot machines.I think that there is that in the slot machines you can set the settings to deceive the players. And you know what I like to play. I choose the fair play I mean this site syndicate aus I go myself roulette and poker in an online casino, I am a fan of virtual When I play there, I have never been deceived once, on the contrary, I even received pleasant bonuses for the experience of the game and for the results. I think that you yourself can choose the best game that will bring you your first million. The matter that the main thing is that intuition and logical thinking do not fail, am I right?

Lets break the problem into 2 parts.

1st part: Calculate profit of 5 days and 3 shifts
Given profit of 1 shift = 600
so for 3 shifts and 5 days: 600 * 3 * 5 = 9000

2nd part: Calculate profit of 2 days of weekend and 3 shifts
Given profit of 1 shift = 25% greater than usual days (600) = 125% * 600 or 1.25 (600)
so for 3 shifts and 2 days: 600 * 1.25 * 3 * 2 = 4500

Total Profit = 9000 + 4500 = 13500 option C
