1) Overview of Topics Addressed
For graduates of the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) who are about to enter the professional world, this book is an easy way to brush up on basic mathematic skills before entering the job market. This 383 page book covers math topics such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, solving percent problems, statistics, business graphics, and measurement systems English and Metric. It helps the student compute business records and transactions such as invoices, purchase orders, stock records, and time cards. Students can also learn to calculate the wages of employees with true-to-life word problem scenarios. For example, "Jack Green is paid $7.25 an hour for a 40-hour week plus time and a half for overtime. Last week he worked 45 hours. How much was his gross pay? Green worked 40 hours of regular time plus 5 hours of overtime". By practicing word problems that are realistic to the profession, this book helps people with basic skills in the restaurant industry.
2) How the Topic Relates to the Hospitality/Restaurant Industry
The hospitality/restaurant industry, according to the CIA Course Catalog 2004-2005, is an "industry that generates an estimated $440.1 billion in annual sales in the US." This book provides chefs a review of fundamental math skills which are imperative for running successful restaurant businesses. It teaches checking and accuracy methods, as well as shortcuts in business computations. "Anyone working in the business world must have a thorough knowledge of multiplication. When you are given the number of items purchased and the price of each, you find the total cost of the purchase by multiplication. Discounts are found by multiplication, as are sales taxes".

Hi, I would like to tell you how much I enjoyed the Business Math book. The book was so fun and easy to catch on to that before I knew it I was done. This book is thick so you would think it would take you months to do but it dosent.The book is designed as a teacher first they explain the work and give you examples then you do the work and refer to the examples as you would a teacher so thank you for writing this book Colman Goozner.
