While it provides financial compensation for the extra time spent working, it is not considered a traditional benefit like vacation time, health insurance, or employee discounts, which are additional perks or advantages provided by employers to their employees.

    To calculate gross pay, you need to multiply the number of hours worked by the hourly pay rate.

By multiplying the hours worked by the hourly pay rate, you can determine the total amount of money earned for that period, which is the gross pay.

    Rent is not a variable expense because it is a fixed cost that remains constant regardless of the level of activity or usage. Variable expenses, on the other hand, fluctuate based on usage or consumption. Clothing, food, and entertainment expenses can vary depending on individual choices and preferences, making them variable expenses.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The question asks about what is not asked on a job application. The answer is "Your race". This means that job applications typically do not require individuals to disclose their race. This information is not relevant or necessary for the job application process as it is illegal to discriminate against applicants based on their race.

    Correct Answer
    B. Subtract
    Explanation
    When entering checks and debit card purchases in your check register, you should subtract the amount from your balance.

By subtracting the amount from your balance, you can accurately track your remaining balance and avoid overdrawing your account.

Giving a notice period of two weeks demonstrates professionalism and respect towards the employer and the company. It also allows the employee to wrap up any pending tasks and ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities. Giving a shorter notice period may inconvenience the employer, while giving no notice at all can harm professional relationships and future job prospects. Giving at least a month's notice is not required but can be considered if the employee wants to provide additional time for the employer to find a replacement.
