#### Choose the best word to finish the phrase.

"I'm so _________ that I could eat an enormous supper!" Jayson said passionately.

#### Arman's and Jay both start working at the same company. Arman starts off earning twice as much as Jay, but he doesn't get a rise for five years, whilst Jay gets a $5,000 raise every year. Their salaries are equivalent after five years.

When they first started working, how much did Jay earn?

Explanation:

$25,000. If Jay earns a $5,000 rise every year for the next five years, he will have earned a total of $25,000 more. If their incomes are now equal, and Jay salary was originally half of Arman's, Jay has more than quadrupled his earnings. As a result, Jay was paid $25,000 at the start.
