Enrique charges $5 for every 1/5 hour he spends walking dogs. In the morning he walks Buttons for 2/5 hour, Bruno for 1/5 hour, and Pepper for 3/5 hour, Monday through Friday. On Saturdays he takes Mimi, Diva, and Coco to the dog park for 4/5 of an hour. On Wednesday this week it rained and Pepper wanted to stay out for only 1/5 hour. How many hours did Enrique spend with the dogs this week? Explain your method.

for 5 days 2/5 + 1/5 + 3/5 = 6/5*5 = 30/5

Sat 3 *4/5 = 12/5

Wed -2/5 for wet Pepper

30/5 + 12/5 - 2/5 = 40/5 = 8 hours

I think that Saturdays he takes Mimi, Diva and Coco to the park together so you don't multiply 4/5 times 3 dogs but only 1 time 4/5
