# TSI Math: Converting Units to Calculate How Much Animators Get Paid

Sharona and Leslie just opened their own animation studio, and their first client wants a 24-minute episode ready in 4 weeks. An animator can produce 175 frames a day, and 25 frames equals 1 second of an episode.

Sharona and Leslie pay their animators $550 per five-day workweek and hire the minimum number of animators needed to complete the project in 4 weeks.

What is the total amount the company will pay in salaries for the 4-week period? Round your answer to the nearest dollar.

### Transcript

equals one second of an episode Meghan and land and

pay their animators five hundred fifty dollars per five day

workweek and hire the minimum number of animators needed to

complete the project in four weeks What is the total

amount the company will pay in salaries for the four

week period and you can just round your answer to

the nearest dollars It's pretty interesting here looking be there

Six million nine hundred some that's where i want to

work apparently not all right Moving on well analyzing this

problems like tryingto list the reasons parents should not volunteer

to be chaperones at their kids promise it's hard to

know where to start calculating the number of seconds of

film a single animator can produce in one day seems

as good a place as any so we got one

hundred seventy five frames a day divided by twenty five

frames a second neck ids of seven seconds a day

Well a single animator can produce seven seconds per day

of the film time or video time or thirty five

seconds a week Well a twenty four minute episode is

twenty four times sixty one thousand four hundred forty seconds

So to finish the project on time the animators must

produce one thousand four hundred forty seconds divided by those

four weeks or three hundred sixty seconds per week And

we divide this number by the thirty five seconds per

week animator to find the minimum number of animators needed

to accomplish the job like megan and landon maybe hitting

up indeed or glass door to find some more animators

and that gets us three sixty divided by thirty five

and it's about ten point three We've never met anyone

who we considered point two eight or a point Three

of an animator there so round up round down the

minimum number of animators needed is eleven Rounding down would

give us ten and don't get the wrong answer because

we need a third of an animator there Tio make

up for the difference And if you only have a

twenty three point two minute episode well then it's not

ready and the network will reject you and not you

and that would be bad if only ten animators were

toe work There'd be a problem so we need eleven

animators and each one makes five fifty a week over

four weeks So if you multiply five fifty by four

there you get twenty two hundred and then you multiply

that by eleven and you get twenty four thousand two

hundred bucks and there we go The answer is a 00:02:33.13 --> [endTime] for animator
