At a certain company, each employee has a salary grade s that is at least 1 and at most 5. Each employee receives an hourly wage p, in dollars, determined by the formula p = 9.50 + 0.25(s – 1). An employee with a salary grade of 5 receives how many more dollars per hour than an employee with a salary grade of 1?

A. $0.50

B. $1.00

C. $1.25

D. $1.50

E. $1.75

p = 9.50 + 0.25(s – 1).

Hourly wage (p) if S=1 --> 9.50 + 0.25(1 – 1) = 9.5

Hourly wage (p) if S=5 --> 9.50 + 0.25(5 – 1) = 9.5 + 0.25 x 4 = 9.5 + 1.00

So the answer has to be B. Kindly confirm the OA because OA can not be C.
