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?

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? 
Shohanur
no

Shohanur
maybe $12.25 a day

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

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

Shohanur
my mistake. 7 dollars an hour

Writeacher
Do the math, then:
1.75 x 7 x 5 = ? 
Shohanur
61.25?

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

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

Sophie
Writeacher is right!
