**Answer:**

I should take that pays **$12 per hour**

**Explanation:**

Since, the standard hour of working in 1 week = 45 hours,

**For first company :**

If company pays $12 per hour,

Wages for a week = 45 × 12 = $ 540,

∵ 1 year = 52 weeks,

Thus,** annual wages** = 52 × weekly wages = 52 × 540 = **$ 28,080,**

**For second company :**

Wages per month = $1,400,

1 year = 12 months,

So, **annual wages **= 12 × monthly wages = 12 × 1400 = **$ 16,800,**

**For third company :**

**Annual wages **= **$26,500 ,**

∵ 28,080 > 26,500 > 16,800

Hence, **i should go to the job that gives $ 12 per hour.**
