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.

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

  11. Sophie

    Writeacher is right!
