$480.77 every 2 weeks.  This is gross pay, before ANY deductions.

$12,500/26 ≈ $480.77

The amount will depend on details of Burger Fast company policy. The above amount assumes the annual salary is divided among the number of paychecks received in a year (26 most years). If pay is divided by 261 work days (including holidays) and multiplied by 10 days per pay period, her gross may be
  $12,500/26.1 ≈ $478.93

I don't do math for people but I do offer help. Okay so first you have to figure how many biweekly is (meaning every two weeks). There are 52 weeks in the year. After you get how many paychecks she is going to recieve, then you use the total salary divided by the number of pay-periods.

I never liked such tasks even at school. But my son now is a fan of maths and economics. That is so strange. The only thing he does not like is literature. Honestly, I allow him to buy an essay when the topic is too hard for him. Am I the worst mother? I do not think so, I just want my kid not to hate school and do what he likes doing. Otherwise, he can lose any interest to study.
