Money paid to Jack(since he packs 125 boxes) = 100*0.05$ + 25*0.07
= 5$ + 1.75$(Option B)

We know that he will get paid
0.05$ for the first 100 boxes and 0.07$ for the remaining boxes.

As jack has packed 125 boxes, for which the rate is .05 for first 100 and .07 for the rest 25
rate is 100*.05 + 25*.75
5+1.75
=6.75

My approach to the problem has been the following :

Here (x-100) represents the additional box after the first 100 boxes.

100*0.05 + (x-100)*0.07 = 5+(125-100)*0.07

5+25*0.07 = 5+1.75 = 6.75

Therefore option (B) is the answer.

As jack has packed 125 boxes.

For first 100 boxes he earned = 100 * 0.05 = $5
For next 25 boxes he earned = 25 * 0.07 = $1.75

Total earning = $5 + $ 1.75 = $6.75

Ans : Option B
