Transcript: The Quickie Mart While living near the suburbs of Arizona, Pedro decided that he could build another of the famous Quickie Marts twenty-two miles away from the city of Phoenix. He has had luck with the previous two Quickie Marts since everybody liked the design and how everything was well done, but this one is going to be a bit different since its out of the city limits and close to almost anything. Pedro also wants to sell diesel and gasoline, as well as food, drinks, and miscellaneous merchandise for the truckers or people going on vacations. Physical Pedro is concerned of the weather and the climate of the region. The place he wants to build the Quickie Mart is a real desertous place, and if something happens, help is twenty-two miles away so he has to plan everything out well. He has to buy a nice and cold air conditioner so that him or his employees can survive the terrible heat. He also needs to know where to store the frozen food and all the merchandise so that it wont get stolen or go bad. He decides to make a basement to store all the goodies. Everything is ready and the building needs to be done. He posts an advertisement on the newspaper's employment opportunities and decides to leave it there for a week to see if someone is interested in the job. After the advertisement has been posted Pedro starts to get disappointed since nobody has called him during the passed three days. At the fourth day he gets a call. Unfortunately its the one who sold the land to Pedro and tells him the building needs to be getting started. Or if not he will take the land away. At the end of the day he gets calls regarding the posting and he is happy to know people are interested and that he will be complete to start the building. After several calls he agrees he would pay the new workers 10 dollars per hour since he pays his regular crew 12 per hour. Then he decides to compensate the new workers with extra hours so that they can earn almost the same amount of money as his regular crew and so that they can feel motivated and would want to keep working. When the new crew arrived they all felt good with their wages and the extra hours they could make. They thought it was good since they were almost getting paid the same money as the other workers. On the other hand when the regular workers knew about the wages of the new employees they got disappointed since they've been working for Pedro longer and the new crew is getting paid almost the same. Some of his regular crew were even thinking of quitting the job with Pedro and finding another one where they would get paid more for what they did. What the workers didn't know was that they were only working during the week and the new crew would also work on week ends. One of the regular workers made a good point. He didn't get disappointed because of the new wages. He was happy because regular workers were not going to work on weekends and the new crew were. When the rest of the crew started to make plans and suggest things they could do on the week ends everything changed. All the tention created because of the wages and of the extra hours worked by the new crew was over. The work began. Everything was going great and there wasn't any problems, but Pedro had changed a bit. In previous contracts he would talk to his regular employees about their family since he knew all of them for cookouts they would make. Now he would only talk about work and things they would do during the week. Regular workers asked him what was going on but he wouldn't answer them when the new crew was around. Pedro then talked to his regular crew alone so that they would understand that if they would talk about family issues the new crew would feel left out since they don't know any of them. One of the crew members suggests to make a cookout so that everybody could get together and know each other, and Pedro agreed. Once in the cookout the issue was addressed, everybody worked comfortably and without any problems of leaving someone left out. Pedro as a contractor calls his regular crew to come and build the new Quickie Mart but realizes he is short hand and will need to hire thirty workers more. A month later the Quickie Mart was complete and fully operational.


Transcript: Contractor My step dad John is a contractor. He uses Algebra all the time. He uses it when he is building something of his own or just assembling something. A contractor is a person or company that undertakes a contract to provide materials or labor to perform a service or do a job. If John is remodeling the inside of a kitchen for his clients he has to order the flooring. The Room is 20 ft. wide and 18 ft. long. What is the area of the room? Area= length X width Area= 18ft. X 20ft. Area= 360 ft.Squared The area of the kitchen is 360 ft. squared. Each box of flooring covers 6 ft. squared of the kitchen. If each box covers 6 ft. squared. How many boxes will John need? To figure this out take the total area which is 360 ft. squared. Divide 360 by 6. 360 divided by 6 gives you 60. This tells you that John needs 60 boxes. John adds in 5% waste just in case of a damaged piece of flooring or a mistake. First thing we must do is turn 5% into a decimal. So, to do this move the decimal over two places. After you get .05 multiply it by 55 because 55 boxes was the total number of boxes. When you multipy out you get 2.75. Because you can't order three quarters of a box John would order an extra 3 boxes. John would decide to order 58 boxes. The cabinets are a total of 15 ft. long by 2 ft. wide. How many boxes would John then need? Suppose John decided to put the cabinets in first and then put the flooring in so that there is no flooring under the cabinets. To do this you will need the area of the cabinets. Area= Length X Width Area= 15 ft. X 2 ft. Area= 30 ft. squared So the next step is to suntract the 30 ft. From the total area. The total are of the kitchen is 360 ft. squared. With no flooring under the cabinets the area is 330 ft. squared. Like before take your area of 330 ft. squared and divide it by the amount that each box covers which is 6 ft. squared. When you do this you get 55. So John would need 55 boxes.
