Donald works 1 and 3/4 hour a day at a book store. if he is paid \$7 a day, how much money will he make in 5 days?

1. JJ

This seems a little odd to me.

if he is paid \$7 per day and works 5 days, he should make \$35.

Is something missing from the question or is this a question where they want you to ignore the extra information?

2. Shohanur

no

3. Shohanur

maybe \$12.25 a day

4. JJ

No.. they said he makes \$7 per day.

5. Writeacher

Do you mean \$7 per day? Or \$7 per hour??

6. Shohanur

my mistake. 7 dollars an hour

7. Writeacher

Do the math, then:

1.75 x 7 x 5 = ?

8. Shohanur

61.25?

9. Writeacher

Put the dollar sign before the 6, and it'll be perfect.

10. Sophie

The answer is \$61.25, but I don't now how to get it

11. Sophie

Writeacher is right!

13. aaliyah
