Carl hired 4 people to work in his shipping department for a week at 8 hours a day. However, after working only 4 hours on the third day, the work was completed. How many hours of wages does Carl owe to the workers?

Is he paying them for only the hours they worked? Or did he contract to pay them for the entire week?

Carl owes each of them 40 hours of wages.

Carl owe the workers 80hours pay
2 days at 8hours a day is 16 hours
day (3)work only 4 hours
Total hours work 20 "
for 4 workers working 20 hours =20 X 4 =80 hours pay
