    Q. A earns £250 a week. how much does he earn a year.

    1. 12,000. Because 1000 a month so 12,000 a year.

    2. £13,000. £250 x 52 = 13,000.

    which is right?

    This. I really don't understand why you'd assume £1000 a month for 12 months when the question clearly states per week. Use the information you have, don't try to invent new information.

    In a non leap year there are just over 52 weeks in a year though. So depends what they're looking for really doesn't it.

    Look at a calendar and you will see that all months except Ferbuary* consist of more than 4 weeks or 28 days.
