Assume you work at a company where you are paid hourly. You are paid $8.60 per hour for regular time (less than or equal to forty hours) and time and a half for overtime hours up to fifty hours in one week. If you are asked to work fifty or more hours in one week you are paid double-overtime. Write this information in the form of a piecewise-defined function and be sure to include the domain for each piece. Also, check your model by calculating the pay for working forty hours and for working forty-one hours. Post these values as well.
