If TruLite's basic production employee receives an hourly wage of Comp = $5.00 + .10 Q in which Q is the number of light switches installed per hour, then: Answer
$5.00 is the basic incentive to produce.
Q is completely dependent on random elements in the production system.
$0.10 is the incentive to increase effort.
effort is unimportant in this production system.
Expert:  replied 2 years ago.

The answer here is

 

$0.10 is the incentive to increase effort.

 

the first option is not the incentive, it is the base pay ($5.00)

Q is not dependent - it is the independent variable and is the number that is produced

effort is important in this system - the effort determines the pay amount for each employee

 

So, $0.10 is the incentive to increase effort. is the correct answer.
