If you work 35 hours a week and earn $30 per hour, then that would be 30(35) = $1050 per week.

If you work 50 weeks a year this would be 50 (1050) = $52,500 per year.

How long does it take to earn `10^6` or $1,000,000

Let x = the number of years.

This means that `52,500x = 10^6.`

Divide both sides by 52,500.

`10^6-: 52,500 = 19.048` years.

**The solution is 19.048 years to earn `10^6` dollars.**
