Claudia earns $6.40 per hour (h). For overtime (each hour
over 40 h) she earns $9.60. If she works 48.5 h in a week, what pay should she
receive?

  • math -

    40 * 6.40 = 256

    48.5 - 40 = 8.5

    8.5 * 9.60 = 81.60

    256 + 81.60 = $337.60

  • math -

    To my mind easier to understand if the units are included? [I am very pedantic about including units my students!]

    40 h * $6.40 h^-1 = $256

    48.5 h - 40 h= 8.5 h

    8.5 h * $9.60 h^-1= $81.60

    $256 + $81.60 = $337.60
