If you take the job of your dreams, your pay will be \$48 per hour. The hitch is that you will be paid in ten minute increments. If you begin work at 8:30 am, how much will you have earned by your 1:00 pm lunch break today?

( Please show me the steps. thanks )

• math -

earnings=rate*time=48dollars/6T * time

where t is ten minute increments
time= 1PM-8:30= 13hrs -(8.5hrs)=4.5hrs=4.5*6T=27T

earnings=18/T*27T= 18*27 dollars
